Office  op  THE   SECRETARY, 
Washington,  D.  C,  January  8,  1896. 

To  Collectors  and  other  officers  of  the  Customs: 

Section  7  of  the  act  of  June  10,  1890,  provides  that  "if  the  appraised  value  of  any  article  of  imported 
merchandise  shall  exceed  by  more  than  ten  per  centum  the  value  declared  in  the  entry,  there  shall  be 
levied,  collected,  and  paid,  in  addition  to  the  duties  imposed  by  law  on  such  merchandise,  a  further  sum 
equal  to  two  per  centum  of  the  total  appraised  value  for  each  one  per  centum  that  such  appraised  value 
exceeds  the  value  declared  in  the  entry ;  and  the  additional  duties  shall  only  apply  to  the  particular 
article  or  articles  in  each  invoice  which  are  undervalued;  and  if  such  appraised  value  shall  exceed  the  value 
declared  in  the  entry  more  than  forty  per  centum,  such  entry  may  be  held  to  be  presumptively  fraudulent,  and  the 
collector  of  customs  may  seize  such  merchandise  and  proceed  as  in  cases  of  forfeiture  for  violations  of  the  customs 
laws;  and  in  any  legal  proceedings  which  may  result  from  such  seizure  the  fact  of  such  undervaluation 
shall  be  presumptive  evidence  of  fraud,  and  the  burden  of  proof  shall  be  on  the  claimant  to  rebut  the 
same,  and  forfeiture  shall  be  adjudged  unless  he  shall  rebut  said  presumption  of  fraudulent  intent  by 
sufficient  evidence." 

Although  the  language  of  the  above  provision  has  been  construed  as  permissive,  rather  than  mandatory, 
the  Department  desires  it  to  be  understood  that,  in  any  case  where  an  undervaluation  of  40  per  cent  or 
more  has  been  found  of  imported  merchandise,  seizure  should  be  made  at  once  under  a  presumption  of 
fraud,  unless  the  circumstances  are  such  as  to  positively  relieve  the  importer  from  any  suspicion  of  fraudu- 
lent intention.

When  "soft  refined'.'  sugars  made  from. imported  raw' cane  sugars  are  exported,  the  quantity: of 
"crystallizable  sugar"  contained  therein  shall  be  determined  by  reference  to  weight  arid  polariscope 
test  of '  the  exported  article,  and  drawback  allowance  shall  be  based  on  the  quantity  of  "crystallizable 
sugar"  so  found,  as  hereinbefore  provided  for  a  like  quantity  of  "hard  refined"  sugar. 

When  the  "hard  refined"  sugars  hereinbefore  described  are  made  wholly  from  imported  raw  beet 
sugars,  the  dutiable  value  of  the  material  used  for  each  pouud  of  the  exported  article  shall  be  determined 


by  dividing  the  dutiable  value  of  1  pound  of  the  material  used  by  the  decimal  denoting  the  "net 
analysis"  of  such  material. 

The  amount  of  drawback  which  may  be  allowed  on  the  exported  sirup  product  of  raw  cane  sugars 
shall  be  determined  by  allowing  for  each  gallon  of  the  exported  article,  valued  at  5  cents  in  condition  as 
"thrown"  from  the  "centrifugal,"  the  duties  paid  on  the  respective  grades  and  quantities  of  material 
used  as  indicated  in  the  following  schedule :

The  value  of  the  sirup  in  condition  as  thrown  from  the  centrifugal  shall  be  declared  by  the  manu- 
facturer on  the  drawback  entry,  which  declaration  shall  be  verified  by  the  collector,  and  if  the  declaration 
so  verified  shows  a  value  per  gallon  above  or  below  5  cents,  the  allowance  shall  be  determined  by 
increasing  or  reducing  the  schedule  allowance  in  proportion  to  the  increase  or  reduction  above  or  below 
the  5  cents  per  gallon,  but  in  no  case  shall  the  allowance  be  based  on  a  value  of  sirup  exceeding  8  cents 
per  gallon  without  special  authority  from  the  Department. 

For  fractional  tests  of  the  raw  cane  sugar  used  in  the  manufacture  of  either  refined  sugar  or  sirup, 
the  allowances  of  quantity  of  material  shall  be  computed  in  proportion  to  the  schedule  allowances  for  the 
degrees  next  above  or  below  such  fractional  test. 

The  quantities  of  sugar  and  sirup  exported  shall  be  ascertained  by  United  States  weighers  and 
gaugers,  respectively,  and  samples  shall  be  taken  as  ordered  by  the  collector,  to  be  submitted  to  the 
appraiser  for  report  of  polariscope  test  and  such  other  expert  inspection  as  may  be  requisite. 

On  requisition  of  collectors,  appraising  officers  shall  furnish  polariscope  tests,  "net  analyses,"  and 
other  conditions  of  valuation  of  raw  sugars  not  found  on  the  import  invoice  for  use  in  liquidation  of 
drawback  entries.

To  Officers  of  the  Customs  and  others : 

The  attention  of  officers  of  the  customs  and  others  is  invited  to  the  following  provision  of  Section  t> 
of  the  Act  of  August  28,  1894,  viz : 

"Section  6.  That  no  article  of  imported  merchandise  which  shall  copy  or  simulate  the  name  or  trade- 
mark of  any  domestic  manufacture  or  manufacturer,  shall  be  admitted  to  entry  at  any  custom-house  of 
the  United  States.  And  in  order  to  aid  the  officers  of  the  customs  in  enforcing  this  prohibition  any 
domestic  manufacturer  who  has  adopted  trade-marks  may  require  his  name  and  residence  and  a  description 
of  his  trade-marks  to  be  recorded  in  books  which  shall  be  kept  for  that  purpose  in  the  Department  of  the 
Treasury,  under  such  regulations  as  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury  shall  prescribe,  and  may  furnish  to  the 
Department  fac-similes  of  such  trade-marks ;  and  thereupon  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury  shall  cause  one 
or  more  copies  of  the  same  to  be  transmitted  to  each  collector  or  other  proper  officer  of  the  customs." 

Applications  for  the  recording  of  names  or  trade-marks  in  this  Department  will  state  the  name  and 
residence  of  the  domestic  manufacturer,  and  furnish  a  description  of  the  mark  and  the  names  of  the  ports 
to  which  the  facsimiles  should  be  sent.  No  such  name  or  trade-mark  will  be  received  unless  accompanied 
by  the  proper  proof  of  ownership  and  proof  that  the  owner  is  a  domestic  manufacturer,  which  must  con- 
sist of  the  affidavit  of  the  owner  or  one  of  the  owners,  certified  by  a  notary  public,  or  other  officer  entitled 
to  administer  oaths  and  having  a  seal. 

On  the  receipt  by  a  customs  officer  of  any  such  facsimiles,  with  information  from  the  Department 
that  they  have  been  recorded  therein,  he  will  properly  record  and  file  them,  and  will  exercise  care  to 
prevent  the  entry  at  the  custom-house  of  any  article  of  foreign  manufacture  copying  or  simulating  such 
mark. 

No  fees  are  charged  for  recording  trade-marks  in  the  Department  and  custom-houses. 

A  sufficient  number  of  facsimiles  should  be  forwarded  to  enable  the  Department  to  send  one  copy  to 
each  port  named  in  the  application,  with  an  additional  copy  for  the  files  of  the  Department.

TRANSMISSION  OF  GOVERNMENT  MESSAGES  OVER  BOND-AIDED  OR  SUBSIDIZED 

TELEGRAPH  LINES. 


office  of  COMPTROLLER  OF  THE  TREASURY, 

Washington,  D.  C,  February  17,  1896. 

To  Disbursing  Officers  mid  other  Officers  and  Agents  of  the  Government  : 

The  observance  and  enforcement  of  the  following  regulations  will  hereafter  be  required  of  the 
disbursing  officers  and  other  officers  and  agents  of  the  Government.  A  strict  compliance  therewith  will 
obviate  the  necessity  of  disallowances  and  suspensions  in  the  settlement  of  their  accounts  : 

1.  The  statutes  of  the  United  States  require  that  the  compensation  for  messages  sent  at  Government 
expense  over  telegraph  lines  constructed  in  connection  with  Pacific  railroads,  to  which  bonds  have  been 
issued  by  the  United  States  in  aid  of  their  construction,  shall  be  withheld  by  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury 
and  applied  in  payment  of  the  subsidy  bonds  and  interest.  In  order  that  these  provisions  of  law  may  be 
complied  with,  the  accounts  of  the  respective  telegraph  companies  for  Government  messages  sent  over 
bond-aided  or  subsidized  lines  must  be  transmitted  to  the  Treasury  Department  for  settlement,  and  not  be 
paid  by  disbursing  officers  or  by  any  other  officers  or  agents  of  the  Government. 

2.  Officers  or  agents  of  the  Government,  in  sending  messages  on  Government  business,  are  instructed 
to  use  the  bond-aided  or  subsidized  telegraph  lines,  whenever  practicable  to  do  so,  in  preference  to  other 
lines  which  are  not  subject  to  the  same  conditions. 

3.  Messages  originating  on  a  bond-aided  line  and  directed  to  a  point  on  a  bond-aided  line  must  be 
sent  over  the  aided  line  or  lines. 

4.  Messages  originating  on  a  bond-aided  line  and  directed  to  a  point  near  an  aided  line  should  be  sent 
over  the  aided  line  in  cases  where  the  larger  part  of  the  service  would  be  over  aided  lines. 

5.  Messages  originally  filed  with  a  nonaided  company  which  has  a  through  line  to  the  point  of 
destination  may  be  transmitted  to  destination  without  transfer  to  any  other  line.  If  the  company  has  no 
through  line  and  transfer  is  necessary,  the  transfer  must  be  to  a  bond-aided  line  whenever  practicable, 
and  at  the  nearest  point  of  contact  with  the  aided  line.  In  such  cases  the  officer  sending  the  message 
must  indorse  thereon  the  request  that  it  be  sent  over  the  bond-aided  line  ;  but  a  failure  to  make  such 
indorsement  shall  not  be  construed  as  giving  the  company  the  right  of  selection  and  discrimination 
against  bond-aided  Hues. 

6.  When  a  message  is  filed  with  a  bond-aided  company,  whose  operator  is  also  serving  a  nonaided 
company,  the  message  must  be  written  on  a  blank  furnished  by  the  former  company. 

7.  Where  the  entire  service  is  over  bond-aided  or  subsidized  telegraph  lines  no  payment  to  the  tele- 
graph companies  must  be  made  by  the  officer  or  agent  of  the  Government  who  sends  the  message  or  by 
any  disbursing  officer.  In  such  case  the  officer  or  agent  sending  the  message  is  not  charged  with  any 
duty  respecting  the  payment  thereof,  except  to  inform  the  agent  or  operator  of  the  telegraph  company 
who  receives  the  message  that  it  is  the  duty  of  the  company  under  the  law  to  transmit  the  same,  and  to 


present  its  account  therefor  to  the  proper  Department  of  the  Government,  to  be  approved  by  the  head  of 
such  Department,  under  the  proper  appropriation,  and  forwarded  to  the  accounting  officers  of  the  Treasury 
for  settlement  in  accordance  with  the  requirements  of  the  law.  Such  accounts  should  be  forwarded  by 
the  respective  telegraph  companies,  through  their  usual  channels,  to  that  Department  of  the  Government 
with  which  the  officers  or  agents  sending  the  respective  messages  are  connected.  For  example :  An 
account  for  messages  sent  by  officers  of  the  Interior  Department  should  be  transmitted  to  that  Department, 
to  be  approved  and  forwarded  to  the  accounting  officers  of  the  Treasury  for  settlement;  an  account  for 
messages  sent  by  officers  of  the  Department  of  Justice  should  be  forwarded  in  like  manner  to  that  Depart- 
ment, or  an  account  for  messages  sent  by  officers  of  the  Treasury  Department  should  be  transmitted  to 
the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury. 

8.  Where  the  service  is  continuous  and  entire  over  lines  partly  subsidized  and  partly  not,  or  over  con- 
necting lines  one  of  which  is  subsidized  and  the  other  not,  but  one  account  for  the  entire  service  should 
be  rendered  by  the  telegraph  company  which  receives  and  transmits  the  message,  showing  the  respective 
amounts  claimed  for  aided  and  nonaided  service.  Such  account  is  not  to  be  paid  by  any  disbursing  officer 
or  by  the  officer  or  agent  sending  the  message,  but  must  be  forwarded  by  the  telegraph  company  to  the 
proper  Department  of  the  Government  in  the  manner  already  indicated,  and  in  the  settlement  thereof  by 
the  accounting  officers,  the  amount  found  due  and  payable  in  money  for  nonaided  service  will  be  certified 
for  payment  to  the  telegraph  company,  and  the  amount  found  due  for  service  over  the  bond-aided  lines 
will  be  applied  as  required  by  law. 

9.  Whenever  practicable  prepayment  should  not  be  made  on  messages  sent  to  and  from  Washington, 
D.  C,  but  accounts  for  the  same  should  be  sent  through  the  proper  channels  to  the  Treasury  Department 
for  payment ;  provided  that  this  shall  not  apply  to  officers  required  to  pay  the  expense  of  telegraphing 
from  the  emoluments  of  their  offices. 

For  the  information  and  guidance  of  all  concerned  is  subjoined  a  list  descriptive  of  the  bonded  Pacific 

railroads  in  connection  with  which  bond-aided  or  subsidized  telegraph  lines  have  been  constructed,  and 

a  reference  to  the  several  acts  of  Congress  relating  thereto.

REGULATIONS  CONCERNING  CATTLE  TRANSPORTATION. 


U.  S.  Department  of  Agriculture, 

Office  of  the  Secretary, 

Washington,  D.  C,  February  1,  1896. 
To  the  Managers  and  Agents  of  Railroads  and   Transportation  Companies  of  the  United  States,  Stockmen 

and  Others: 

In  accordance  with  Section  7  of  the  act  of  Congress  approved  May  29,  1884,  entitled  "  An  act  for 
the  establishment  of  a  Bureau  of  Animal  Industry,  to  prevent  the  exportation  of  diseased  cattle,  and  to 


provide  means  for  the  suppression  and  extirpation  of  pleuro-pneumonia  and  other  contagious  diseases 
among  domestic  animals,"  and  of  the  act  of  Congress  approved  March  2,  1895,  making  appropriation 
for  the  Department  of  Agriculture  for  the  fiscal  year  ending  June  30,  1896,  you  are  hereby  notified 
that  a  contagious  and  infectious  disease  known  as  splenetic  or  Southern  fever  exists  among  cattle  in  the 
following- described  area  : 

All  that  country  lying  south,  or  below,  a  line  beginning  at  the  northwest  corner  of  the  State  of 
California;  thence  east,  south,  and  southeasterly  along  the  boundary  line  of  said  State  of  California  to  the 
southeastern  corner  of  said  State ;  thence  southerly  along  the  western  boundary  line  of  Arizona  to  the 
southwest  corner  of  Arizona;  thence  along  the  southern  bouudary  lines  of  Arizona  and  New  Mexico  to 
the  southeastern  corner  of  New  Mexico  ;  thence  northerly  along  the  eastern  boundary  of  New  Mexico  to 
the  southern  line  of  the  State  of  Colorado;  thence  along  the  southern  boundary  lines  of  Colorado  and 
Kansas  to  the  southeastern  corner  of  Kansas ;  thence  southerly  along  the  western  boundary  line  of  Missouri 
to  the  southwestern  corner  of  Missouri;  thence  easterly  along  the  southern  boundary  line  of  Missouri  to 
the  Mississippi  River ;  thence  southerly  along  the  Mississippi  Eiver  to  the  southern  boundary  line  of 
Tennessee;  thence  easterly  along  said  boundary  line  to  the  southeastern  corner  of  Polk  County,  Tenn. ; 
thence  northerly  along  the  eastern  boundary  line  of  Tennessee  to  the  southern  boundary  line  of  Virginia  ; 
thence  west  along  said  boundary  line  to  the  boundary  line  of  Kentucky  at  the  western  point  of  Virginia  ; 
thence  northerly  along  said  boundary  line  to  the  northernmost  point  of  Virginia;  thence  southerly  along 
said  boundary  line  to  the  northeast  corner  of  Virginia  where  it  joins  the  southeastern  corner  of  Maryland, 
at  the  Atlantic  Ocean. 

Whenever  any  State  or  Territory  located  above  or  below  said  quarantine  line  as  above  designated  shall 
duly  establish  a  different  quarantine  line,  and  obtain  the  necessary  legislation  to  enforce  said  last- 
mentioned  line  strictly  and  completely  within  the  boundaries  of  said  State  or  Territory,  and  said  last 
above-mentioned  line  and  the  measures  taken  to  enforce  it  are  satisfactory  to  the  Secretary  of  Agriculture, 
he  may  by  a  special  order  temporarily  adopt  said  State  or  Territorial  line. 

Said  adoption  will  apply  only  to  that  portion  of  said  line  specified,  and  may  cease  at  any  time  the 
Secretary  may  deem  it  best  for  the  interest  involved,  and  in  no  instance  shall  said  modification  exist 
longer  than  the  period  specified  in  said  special  order ;  and  at  the  expiration  of  such  time  said  quarantine 
line  shall  revert  without  further  order  to  the  line  first  above  described. 

Whenever  any  State  or  Territory  shall  establish  a  quarantine  line,  for  above  purposes,  differently 
located  from  the  above-described  line,  and  shall  obtain  by  legislation  the  necessary  laws  to  enforce  same 
completely  and  strictly,  and  shall  desire  a  modification  of  the  Federal  quarantine  line  to  agree  with  such 
State  or  Territorial  line,  the  proper  authorities  of  such  State  or  Territory  shall  forward  to  the  Secretary  of 
Agriculture  a  true  map  or  description  of  such  line  and  a  copy  of  the  laws  for  enforcement  of  same,  duly 
authenticated  and  certified. 

Such  States  or  Territories  as  now  have  a  line  established  as  last  above  mentioned  can  immediately 
forward  certified  copies  of  said  line  and  laws  for  the  enforcement  thereof,  and  if  satisfactory  to  the 
Secretary  of  Agriculture,  the  same  may  be  adopted  at  once  and  the  Federal  line  so  modified. 

From  the  15th  day  of  February  to  the  15th  day  of  November  during  each  year  no  cattle  are  to  be 
transported  from  said  area  south  or  below  said  Federal  quarantine  line  above  described  to  any  portion  of 
the  United  States  above,  north  or  west  of  the  above-described  line,  except  by  rail  for  immediate  slaughter, 
and  when  so  transported  the  following  regulations  must  be  observed  : 

1.  When  any  cattle  in  course  of  transportation  from  said  area  are  unloaded  above,  north  or  west  of 
this  line  to  be  fed  or  watered,  the  places  where  said  cattle  are  to  be  fed  or  watered  shall  be  set  apart  and 
no  other  cattle  shall  be  admitted  thereto. 

2.  On  unloading  said  cattle  at  their  points  of  destination,  pens  shall  be  set  apart  to  receive  them,  and 
no  other  cattle  shall  be  admitted  to  said  pens ;  and  the  regulations  relating  to  the  movement  of  cattle  from 
said  area,  prescribed  by  the  cattle  sanitary  officers  of  the  State  where  unloaded,  shall  be  carefully  observed. 
The  cars  that  have  carried  said  stock  shall  be  cleansed  and  disinfected  before  they  are  again  used  to  trans- 
port, store,  or  shelter  animals  or  merchandise. 

3.  All  cars  carrying  cattle  from  said  area  shall  bear  placards  stating  that  said  cars  contain  Southern 
cattle,  and  each  of  the  waybills  of  said  shipments  shall  have  a  note  upon  its  face  with  a  similar  statement. 
Whenever  any  cattle  have  come  from  said  area  and  shall  be  reshipped  from  any  point  at  which  they  have 
been  unloaded  to  other  points  of  destination,  the  cars  carrying  said  animals  shall  bear  similar  placards 
with  like  statements,  and  the  waybills  be  so  stamped.  At  whatever  point  these  cattle  are  unloaded  they 
must  be  placed  in  separate  pens,  to  which  no  other  cattle  shall  be  admitted. 

4.  The  cars  and  boats  used  to  transport  such  animals,  and  the  pens  in  which  they  are  fed  and  watered, 
and  the  pens  set  apart  for  their  reception  at  points  of  destination,  shall  be  disinfected  in  the  following 
manner : 

(a)  Eemove  all  litter  and  manure.  This  litter  and  manure  may  be  disinfected  by  mixing  it  with  lime 
or  saturating  it  with  a  5  per  cent  solution  of  carbolic  acid,  or,  if  not  disinfected,  it  may  be  stored  where 
no  cattle  can  come  into  contact  with  it  until  after  November  15. 


(6)  Wash  the  cars  and  the  feeding  and  watering  troughs  with  water  until  clean 

(c)  Saturate  the  walls  and  floors  of  the  cars,  and  fencing,  troughs,  and  chutes  of  the  pens  with  a 
solution  made  by  dissolving  4  ounces  of  chloride  of  lime  to  each  gallon  of  water.  Or  disinfect  the  cars 
with  a  jet  of  steam  under  a  pressure  of  not  less  than  50  pounds  to  the  square  inch 

Cattle  from  the  Eepublic  of  Mexico  may  be  admitted  into  the  United  States  to  remain  below  said 
Federal  quarantine  line  after  inspection  according  to  law,  but  said  cattle  shall  not  be  permitted  to  cross 
said  quarantine  line  otherwise  than  by  rail  for  immediate  slaughter,  except  by  special  permit  from  the 
inspectors  of  the  Bureau  of  Animal  Industry  issued  according  to  the  regulations  of  the  said  Bureau  and  no 
permit  shall  be  issued  except  for  cattle  free  from  splenetic  or  Texas  fever,  or  from  contact  therewith  durino- 
the  three  months  preceding  the  issuance  of  said  permit,  and  which  have  been  grazed  in  a  localitvfree  from 
infection  of  such  fever.  J 

The  losses  which  formerly  occurred  to  the  owners  of  susceptible  cattle,  both  in  the  interstate  and 
export  trade,  by  the  contraction  of  this  disease  from  exposure  in  unclean  and  infected  cars  and  pens  and 
by  means  of  the  manure  carried  in  unclean  cars  from  place  to  place,  became  a  matter  of  srave  and  serious 
concern  to  the  cattle  industry  of  the  United  States  until  this  danger  was  removed  by  the  inspection  of  this 
Department.  It  is  absolutely  essential,  therefore,  that  this  cattle  industry  should  continue  to  be  protected 
as  far  as  possible  by  separating  the  dangerous  cattle  and  by  the  adoption  of  efficient  methods  of  disinfection 
Inspectors  will  be  instructed  to  see  that  disinfection  is  properly  done,  and  it  is  expected  that  trans- 
portation companies  will  promptly  put  into  operation  the  above  methods. 
All  prior  orders  conflicting  herewith  are  hereby  revoked.

STEAMBOAT-INSPECTION    SERVICE, 

Office  of  the  Supervising  Inspector  General, 

Washington,  D.  C,  February  19,  1896. 

At  the  regular  meeting  of  the  Board  of  Supervising  Inspectors  of  Steam  Vessels,  held  at 
Washington,  D.  C,  January,  189G,  in  pursuance  of  section  4405,  Revised  Statutes  of  the  United 
States,  amendments  were  made  to  Rules  I,  II,  III,  V,  and  IX,  of  the  General  Rules  and  Regula- 
tions. 

Form  2177,  Certificate  of  Inspection  for  Foreign  Passenger  Steamers,  was  amended;  and 
inspectors  in  districts  where  foreign  passenger  steamers  are  inspected  should  make  immediate 
requisition  therefor,  and,  as  soon  as  supplied,  use  the  new  form  exclusively,  interlining  the 
changes  in  book  of  certificates. 

These  amendments  to  the  rules,  having  received  the  approval  of  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury, 
have  now  the  force  of  law,  as  provided  in  section  4405,  Revised  Statutes,  and  must  he  observed 
accordingly. 

The  following  devices  were  approved  by  the  Board,  and  have  also  received  the  approval  of 
the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury,  as  required  by  section  4491,  Revised  Statutes :

RULES. 


RULE  I. 


Section  3.   (Third  paragraph  new.) 

To  ascertain  the  tensile  strength  and  other  qualities  of  steel  plate,  there  shall  be  taken  from 
each  sheet  to  be  used  in  shell  or  other  parts  of  boiler  which  are  subject  to  tensile  strain,  a  test 
piece  prepared  in  form  according  to  the  following  diagram : 


The  straight  part  in  center  shall  be  9  inches  in  length  and  1  inch  in  width,  marked  with  light 
prick  punch  marks  at  distances  1  inch  apart,  as  shown,  spaced  so  as  to  give  8  inches  in  length. 

The  sample  must  show,  when  tested,  an  elongation  of  at  least  25  per  cent  in  a  length  of  2  inches, 
for  thickness  up  to  i  inch,  inclusive ;  and  in  a  length  of  4  inches,  for  over  £  to  T\,  inclusive ;  in  a 
length  of  8  inches,  for  over  ^  to  1  inch,  inclusive;  and  in  a  length  of  6  inches,  for  all  thickness 
over  1  inch. 

The  reduction  of  area  shall  be  the  same  as  called  for  by  the  rules  of  the  Board.  No  plate 
shall  contain  more  than  .06  per  cent  of  phosphorus,  and  .04  per  cent  of  sulphur,  to  be  determined 
by  analysis  by  the  manufacturers,  verified  by  them,  and  copy  furnished  the  inspector  for  each 
order  tested ;  which  analysis  shall,  if  deemed  expedient  by  the  Supervising  Inspector  General,  be 
verified  by  an  outside  test  at  the  expense  of  the  manufacturer  of  the  plate. 

It  being  further  provided  that  said  manufacturer  shall  also  furnish  a  certificate  with  each 
order  of  steel  to  be  tested,  stating  the  technical  process  by  which  said  steel  was  manufactured. 
It  being  further  provided  that  steel  manufactured  by  what  is  known  as  the  Bessemer  process  shall 
not  be  allowed  to  be  used  in  the  construction  of  marine  boilers.  Plates  over  1  inch  in  thickness 
may  be  reduced  to  1  inch  in  the  straight  part  for  testing,  in  cases  where  the  testing  apparatus  is 
not  of  sufficient  capacity  to  test  the  full  thickness  of  plate.  The  reduction  of  area  and  elongation 
must  be  equal  to  the  requirement  of  full  thickness  of  metal. 

Provided,  however,  That  where  contracts  for  boilers  for  ocean-going  steamers  require  a  test 
of  material  in  compliance  with  the  British  Board  of  Trade,  British  Lloyds,  or  Bureau  Veritas 
rules  for  testing,  the  inspectors  shall  make  the  tests  in  compliance  with  the  above  rules.  The 
samples  shall  also  be  capable  of  being  bent  to  a  curve  of  which  the  inner  radius  is  not  greater 
than  one  and  a  half  times  the  thickness  of  the  plates  after  having  been  heated  uniformly  to  a  low 
cherry  red,  and  quenched  in  water  of  82  degrees  Fahrenheit.  Such  tests  are  to  be  made  at  the 
place  of  manufacture  of  the  material,  by  a  local  or  assistant  inspector  of  the  district  in  which  such 
material  is  to  be  used,  whenever  possible.     If,  however,  from  distance  or  other  sufficient  reason, 

(3) 


the  inspectors  of  the  district  are  unable  to  make  such  tests,  the  Supervising  Inspector  General 
may  direct  a  local  or  assistant  inspector  from  another  district  to  make  them.  In  every  case, 
however,  the  inspector  making  the  tests  shall  stamp  the  initials  of  his  name  above  the  manufac- 
turer's stamp  on  the  plates,  and  also  the  letters  "U.  S.  I.",  with  the  initials  or  abbreviated  signs 
of  the  name  of  the  port  to  which  the  inspector  making  the  tests  belongs. 

Provided  always,  That  the  plate  possesses  homogeneousness,  toughness,  and  ability  to  with- 
stand the  effect  of  repeated  heating  and  cooling ;  but  should  these  tests  prove  any  plate  to  be  over- 
stamped,  such  plate  must  be  rejected  as  failing  to  have  the  strength  stamped  thereon.  But 
nothing  herein  shall  be  so  construed  as  to  prevent  the  manufacturer  from  restamping  such  plate 
and  all  other  plates  in  the  lot  at  the  lowest  tensile  strength  indicated  by  the  deficient  sample,  pro- 
vided such  restamping  is  done  previous  to  the  use  of  the  plates  in  the  manufacture  of  marine 
boilers.  When  more  than  one  sample  shall  be  tested  from  one  sheet,  the  sample  showing  the 
lowest  tensile  strength  shall  be  allowed  as  the  tensile  strength  of  the  plate. 

These  amendments  shall  take  effect  on  and  after  July  1,  1896. 

Section  4.  (First  paragraph.) 

4.  The  manufacturer  of  any  boiler  to  be  used  for  marine  purposes  shall  furnish  the  inspectors 
of  the  district  where  such  boiler  or  boilers  are  to  be  constructed  a  blue  print  or  tracing  descriptive 
of  same  for  their  approval,  which  shall  be  kept  on  file  in  their  office.  Where  more  than  one  boiler 
is  made  from  a  similar  design,  a  drawing  of  which  is  on  file  in  the  local  inspector's  office,  if 
made  at  a  different  date,  a  reference  to  such  drawing  on  file  is  cdl  that  shall  be  required.  The 
manufacturer  shall  also  furnish  the  inspectors  a  written  statement  of  the  kind  of  material  and 
size  of  rivets  to  be  used,  in  the  construction  of  such  boiler,  and  the  size  and  pitch  of  the  rivet 
holes  in  same,  as  well  as  an  affidavit  in  the  following  form,  subscribed  to,  either  by  himself  or 
authorized  agent  having  superintendence  of  the  construction  of  such  boilers. 


Section  9.   (New  paragraph  at  end  of  section.) 

Tubes,  water  pipes,  and  steam  pipes,  made  of  steel  manufactured  by  the  Bessemer  process, 
shall  not  be  allowed  to  be  used  in  any  marine  boiler  built  from  and  [on  or]  after  July  1,  1896 ; 
nor  shall  any  tube  increased  in  thickness  by  welding  one  tube  inside  of  another  be  allowed  for 
use  after  the  above-named  date. 

Section  14.   (Third  paragraph  amended.) 

RIBBED   FURNACE   FLUES. 

The  strength  of  ribbed  flues,  when  used  for  furnaces  or  steam  chimneys  (rib  projections  not 
less  than  If  inches  deep),  and  not  more  than  9  inches  from  center  to  center  of  ribs,  and  provided 
that  the  plain  parts  at  ends  do  not  exceed  9  inches,  and  constructed  of  plates  not  less  than  ^  inch 
thick,  with  practically  true  circle ;  and 

The  strength  of  corrugated  flue  when  used  for  furnace  or  steam  chimney,  corrugated  by  sec- 
tions with  flanged  ends  overlapping  each  other  and  riveted  with  \-inch  rivets,  2-inch  pitch,  corru- 
gated projection  not  less  than  2%  inches  from  inside  of  flue  to  outside  of  lap,  and  not  more  than 
18  inches  between  centers  of  corrugation,  provided  plain  parts  at  ends  do  not  exceed  12  inches  in 
length,  constructed  of  plates  not  less  than  -^  inch  thick,  with  practically  true  circles;  and 

The  strength  of  ribbed  flues  when  used  for  furnaces  or  steam  chimneys,  when  made  in  sections 
of  not  less  than  12  inches  in  length,  measuring  from  center  to  center  of  said  projections,  and 
flanged  to  a  depth  not  exceeding  2\  inches,  and  substantially  riveted  together  with  wrought-iron 
rings  between  such  flanges,  and  such  rings  have  a  thickness  of  not  less  than  double  the  thickness 


of  the  material  in  the  flue  and  a  depth  of  not  less  than  2£  inches,  when  stra  ight  ends  do  not  exceed 
12  indies  in  length,  shall,  in  each  of  the  above  cases,  be  calculated  from  the  following  formula: 

C  =14,000,  a  constant. 

T  =thickness  of  flue  in  decimals  of  an  inch. 

D  =  diameter  of  flue  in  inches. 

P=  pressure  of  steam  allowable. 

Formula:  P=    ,-.    . 

Section  19.   (Amended.) 

All  steamers  [navigating  rivers]  having  boilers  externally  heated  shall  have  a  clear  space  of 
not  less  than  6  inches  between  the  boilers  and  woodwork  on  either  side,  and  4  inches  on  the  top 
of  said  boilers. 

Section  21.  (New.) 

21.  All  boilers  hereafter  placed  in  steamers  shall  have  a  clear  space  of  at  least  8  inches 
between  the  under  side  of  the  cylindrical  shell  and  the  floor  or  keelson. 

All  manholes  for  the  shell  of  boilers  over  40  inches  in  diameter  shall  have  an  opening  not  less 
than  11  by  15  inches  in  the  clear,  except  that  boilers  40  inches  diameter  of  shell  and  under  shall 
have  an  opening  of  not  less  than  9  by  15  inches  in  the  clear  in  manholes. 

Section  23.   (Part  in  brackets  transferred  to  section  38,  Rule  II.) 

23.  All  boilers  shaft  have  a  clear  space  at  the  back  and  ends  thereof  of  2  feet  opposite  the 
pack  connection  door.  [Slip  joints  in  steam  pipes  shall,  in  their  working  parts,  when  the  steamer 
is  to  be  employed  in  navigating  salt  water,  be  made  of  copper  or  composition.]  Provided,  That 
on  vessels  constructed  of  iron  or  steel  with  metal  bulkheads,  the  distance  between  back  connection 
doors  and  such  metal  bulkheads  shall  not  be  less  than  16  inches. 

Section  38.  (Third  paragraph.) 

On  all  boilers  built  after  July  1,  [1891,]  1896,  a  [flanged  bronzed]  bronze,  or  brass-seated 
stopcock  or  valve  shall  be  attached  to  the  boiler  between  all  check  valves  and  all  steam  and  feed 
pipes  and  boilers,  in  order  to  facilitate  access  to  connections. 

Where  such  cocks  or  valves  exceed  H  inches  in  diameter  they  must  be  flanged  to  b&iler.  The 
stop  valves  attached  to  main  steam  pipes  may,  however,  be  made  of  cast  iron  or  other  suitable 
material.     The  date  referred  to  above  applies  to  this  paragraph  only._ 

Section  38.  (Transferred  from  section  23  to  end  section  38.) 

Slip  joints  in  steam  pipes  shall,  in  their  working  parts,  when  the  steamer  is  to  be  employed

To  Collectors  of  Customs  and  others: 

Attention  is  invited  to  the  order  of  the  Department  of  Agriculture,  appended  hereto,  dated  the  25th 
instant,  relative  to  certificates  of  inspection  of  meats  exported  from  the  United  States,  and  especially  to 
that  portion  which  directs  that  the  order  shall  not  be  enforced  until  July  1,  1896.

Order  Postponing  the  Certification  of  Export  Beef  to  July  1,  1896. 

TJ.  S.  Department  of  Agriculture, 

Office  of  the  Secretary, 
Washington,  D.  G. ,  February  25,  1896. 

Whereas,  Section  2  of  the  Act  of  Congress  approved  March  3,  1891,  as  amended  in  the  Act  approved 
March  2,  1895,  provides  as  follows : 

"Section  2.  That  the  Secretary  of  Agriculture  shall  also  cause  to  be  made  a  careful  inspection  of  all 
live  cattle,  the  meat  of  which,  fresh,  salted,  canned,  corned,  packed,  cured,  or  otherwise  prepared,  is 
intended  for  exportation  to  any  foreign  country,  at  such  times  and  places,  and  in  such  manner  as  he  may 
think  proper,  with  a  view  to  ascertain  whether  said  cattle  are  free  from  disease,  and  their  meat  sound  and 
wholesome,  and  may  appoint  inspectors  who  shall  be  authorized  to  give  an  official  certificate  clearly  stating 
the  condition  in  which  such  cattle  and  meat  are  found,  and  no  clearance  shall  be  given  to  any  vessel  having 
on  board  any  fresh,  salted,  canned,  corned,  or  packed  beef  being  the  meat  of  cattle  killed  after  the  passage 
of  this  act  for  exportation  to  and  sale  in  a  foreign  country  from  any  port  in  the  United  States  until  the 
owner  or  shipper  shall  obtain  from  an  inspector  appointed  under  the  provision  of  this  act  a  certificate 
that  said  cattle  were  free  from  disease,  and  that  their  meat  is  sound  and  wholesome;" 

It  is  ordered,  That  all  beef  offered  for  exportation,  whether  fresh,  salted,  canned,  corned,  or  packed, 
shall  be  accompanied  by  a  certificate  of  an  inspector  of  this  Department  showing  that  the  cattle  from 
which  it  was  produced  were  free  from  disease,  and  that  the  meat  was  sound  and*  wholesome.  And  in 
order  that  it  may  be  determined  whether  all  beef  exported  has  been  so  inspected  and  found  free  from 
disease  and  wholesome,  it  is  further  ordered  that  the  meat  of  all  other  species  of  animals  which  is  packed 
in  barrels,  cases,  or  other  packages,  shall  be  legibly  marked  in  such  manner  as  to  clearly  indicate  the 
species  of  animals  from  which  the  meat  was  produced.  Meat  which  is  not  so  marked,  and  which  is  not 
accompanied  by  a  certificate  of  inspection,  will  be  subject  to  unpacking  and  examination  in  order  to 
ascertain  if  it  is  uninspected  beef. 

Notice  is  hereby  given  to  exporters  of  beef,  whether  said  beef  is  fresh,  salted,  canned,  corned, 
packed,  or  otherwise  prepared,  and  to  owners  and  agents  of  vessels  upon  which  said  beef  is  exported, 
that  no  clearance  can  be  given  to  any  vessel  having  on  board  said  beef  until  the  provisions  of  this  order 
are  complied  with. 

As  it  has  been  found  impossible  to  establish  inspection  prior  to  March  1,  1896,  at  all  points  where 
beef  is  prepared  and  packed  for  the  export  trade,  and  as  legislation  is  now  pending  modifying  the  require- 
ment for  certificates  with  all  exported  beef,  it  is  directed  that  this  order  shall  not  be  enforced  until  July 
1,  1896. 

All  orders  and  regulations  of  this  Department  inconsistent  with  this  order  are  hereby  revoked.

Secretary.

EXAMINATION  OF  TOBACCO. 


Division  Of  CuBtoma. 

Office  of  THE   SECRETARY.. 
Washington,  D.  C,  February  28,  1896. 

To  Collectors  and  Other  Officers  of  the  Customs : 

In  order  to  secure  a  more  conclusive  examination  and  appraisement  of  imported  tobacco,  Officers  of 
Customs  are  hereby  instructed  that  whenever  the  examination  of  any  portion  of  any  lot  of  tobacco  covered 
by  an  invoice,  discloses  the  existence  in  one  bale  of  both  "filler"  and  "wrapper"  tobacco,  all  the 
packages  in  such  lot  should  be  subjected  to  examination  in  order  to  determine  the  exact  nature  of  the 
merchandise.  If  the  examination  of  the  usual  number  ordered  for  examination  indicates  that  the  contents 
are  of  one  kind,  i.  e.  either  filler  or  wrapper,  as  set  forth  in  the  invoice,  the  goods  may  be  passed  as  correct. 

Tobacco  in  the  transient  condition  of  "sweat"  should  be  subjected  to  a  brief  exposure  to  the  air 
before  examination. 

As  a  general  rale  the  Department  holds  that  at  least  twenty-five  per  cent  of  every  invoice  should  be 
ordered  for  examination.

In  order  that  Consular  officers  may  be  apprised  of  the  advantages  to  the  revenue  which  shall  have

the  appraisement  of  any  merchandise  which  is  covered  by  a  certified  invoice  on  which  the  Consul  has 
made  annotations  calling  attention  to  apparent  discrepancies  between  the  value  named  in  such  invoice 
and  that  prevailing  in  the  country  of  exportation. 

These  reports  will  be  duly  transmitted  by  this  Department  to  the  Honorable  Secretary  of  State

Department  Circular  No.  3G. 

Division  of  Customs. 

Office  op  THE   SECRETARY, 
Washington,  D.  C,  February  29,  1896. 

To  Collectors  of  Customs  : 

Section  13  of  the  act  of  June  10,  1890  provides  that  whenever  the  importer,  owner,  agent,  or  consignee 
of  imported  merchandise  shall  be  dissatisfied  with  the  appraisement  thereof  as  made  by  the  local 
appraiser,  and  shall  have  complied  witli  the  requirements  of  law  with  respect  to  the  entry  and  appraise- 
ment of  merchandise,  "he  may,  within  two  days  thereafter  give  notice  to  the  Collector,  in  writing,  of 
such  dissatisfaction,  on  the  receipt  of  which  the  Collector  shall  at  once  direct  a  reappraisement  of  such 
merchandise  by  one  of  the  general  appraisers." 

The  last  clause  of  article  847  is  hereby  amended,  so  as  to  read  as  follows  : 

"Collectors  and  acting  collectors  of  customs  shall,  upon  request  of  the  General  Appraisers,  notify 
importers  of  the  time  and  place  appointed  for  the  hearing  of  any  reappraisement  case,  in  which  they 
respectively  shall  be  interested,  and  such  collectors,  as  well  as  the  local  appraisers  and  special  agents  of 
the  Department,  shall  cooperate  to  aid  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers  in  the  preparation  of  cases  by 
securing  witnesses  and  furnishing  all  attainable  evidence  in  support  of  the  Government's  contention. 

"Whenever  a  valuation  has  been  determined,  the  General  Appraiser  shall  report  the  same  to  the  chief 
officer  of  customs." 

It  is  intended  by  this  amended  regulation  to  avoid  delays  such  as  have  occurred  in  many  cases  on 
account  of  the  failure  of  importers  and  witnesses  to  appear  at  hearings  before  the  Board.

FREE  ENTRY  OF  DOMESTIC  PRODUCTS  EXPORTED  AND  RETURNED. 


Departmen^fularNo.37.  ^XtftZVLXX}     ^t^XXXtitViXy 

Division  of  Customs. 

Office  of  THE  SECRETARY, 
Washington,  D.  C,  February  28,  1896. 
To  Collectors  and  Other  Officers  of  the  Customs  : 

Paragraph  387  of  the  act  of  August  28,  1894,  provides  as  follows : 

'Articles  the  growth,  produce,  and  manufacture  of  the  United  States,  when  returned  after  having  been 
exported,  without  having  been  advanced  in  value  or  improved  in  condition  by  any  process  of  manufac- 
ture or  other  means ;  casks,  barrels,  carboys,  bags,  .and  other  vessels  of  American  manufacture  exported 
filled  with  American  products,  or  exported  empty  and  returned  filled  with  foreign  products,  including 
shooks  when  returned  as  barrels  or  boxes  ;  also  quicksilver  flasks  or  bottles,  of  either  domestic  or  foreign 
manufacture,  which  shall  have  been  actually  exported  from  the  United  States  ;  but  proof  of  the  identity 
of  such  articles  shall  be  made,  under  general  regulations  to  be  prescribed  by  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury, 
but  the  exemption  of  bags  from  duty  shall  apply  only  to  such  domestic  bags  as  may  be  imported  by  the 
exporter  thereof,  and  if  any  such  articles  are  subject  to  internal  tax  at  the  time  of  exportation  such  tax 
shall  be  proved  to  have  been  paid  before  exportation  and  not  refunded :  Provided,  That  this  paragraph 
shall  not  apply  to  any  article  upon  which  an  allowance  of  drawback  has  been  made,  the  reimportation  of 
which  is  hereby  prohibited  except  upon  payment  of  duties  equal  to  the  drawbacks  allowed ;  or  to  any 
article  manufactured  in  bonded  warehouse  and  exported  under  said  provision  of  law :  And  provided 
further,  That  when  manufactured  tobacco  which  has  been  exported  without  payment  of  internal-revenue 
tax  shall  be  reimported  it  shall  be  retained  in  the  custody  of  the  collector  of  customs  until  internal- 
revenue  stamps  in  payment  of  the  legal  duties  shall  be  placed  thereon." 

This  provision  is  a  reproduction  of  paragraph  482  of  the  act  of  October  1,  1890,  with  the  addition  of 
the  words  "but  the  exemption  of  bags  from  duty  shall  only  apply  to  such  domestic  bags  as  may  be 
imported  by  the  exporter  thereof." 

Exportations  under  this  provision  of  law  must  be  bona  fide  and  not  for  the  purpose  of  evading  any 
revenue  law. 

Merchandise,  the  growth,  produce,  or  manufacture  of  the  United  States,  ostensibly  exported  to  ports 
in  Canada  in  foreign  vessels,  but  really  shipped  from  one  place  in  the  United  States  to  another  by  routes 
part  water  and  part  rail,  and  passing  through  foreign  territory,  are  not  bona  fide  exportations,  and  the 
merchandise  is  not  entitled  to  free  entry  on  importation. 

Entries  of  merchandise  returned  to  the  port  of  original  exportation,  must  show  the  fact  of  regular 
clearance  for  a  foreign  destination  by  the  records  of  the  customs,  and  by  the  declaration  of  the  person 
making  the  entry.  But  when  the  reimportation  is  made  into  a  port  other  than  that  of  original  exporta- 
tion, there  shall  be  required,  in  addition  to  the  declaration,  a  certificate  from  the  collector  and  the  naval 
officer,  if  any,  of  the  port  where  the  exportation  was  made,  showing  the  fact  of  exportation  from  that  port. 
If  the  importation  be  made  within  one  year  after  the  date  of  exportation,  the  collector  shall  require  the 
importer  to  make  affidavit  to  the  fact  that  such  exportation  was  made  by  him  in  good  faith. 


CAT.  NO.  594. 

Oath  for  return  of  American  products  exported. 

I, — — ,  do  solemnly,  sincerely,  and  truly  swear  (or  affirm)  that  the  several  articles  of  mer- 
chandise mentioned  in  the  entry  hereto  annexed  are,  to  the  best  of  my  knowledge  and  belief,  truly  and 
bona  fide  of  the  growth  (or  production  or  manufacture)  of  the  United  States ;  that  they  were  truly  exported 
and  imported  as  therein  expressed;  that  they  are  returned  without  having  been  advanced  iu  value  or 
improved  in  condition  by  any  process  of  manufacture  or  other  means,  and  that  no  drawback,  bounty  or 
allowance  has  been  paid  or  admitted  thereon,  or  on  any  part  thereof.

Cat.  No.  773. 
Certificate  of  exportation  of  domestic  commodities. 

District  of- ,  Port  of , ,  18 — . 

This  is  to  certify  that  there  were  cleared  from  this  port  on  the ,  in  the ,  whereof  - 


was  master,  for ,  the  following  articles  of  merchandise  (here  enumerate  the  number  of  packages, 

their  denomination,  marks,  numbers,  and  contents)  on  which  no  drawback,  allowance,  or  bounty  has  been 
paid  or  admitted.  * 

[seal.]  '—  Collector. 

[seal.]  Naval  Officer. 

If  such  certificate  can  not  at  once  be  procured,  and  the  proof  otherwise  required  be  produced,  free 
entry  will  be  permitted  on  bond  (Cat.  No.  596)  being  given  for  the  production  of  the  certificate  in  a  sum 
equal  to  what  the  duties  would  be  if  it  were  foreign  merchandise. 

To  guard  against  fraud,  and  to  insure  identity,  the  collector  shall  require  in  addition  to  proof  of 
clearance,  the  production  of  a  declaration  made  by  the  foreign  exporter  of  the  goods  before  the  United 
States  Consul,  of  the  fact  that  the  merchandise  was  imported  from  the  United  States,  and  that  it  has  not 
been  advanced  in  value  nor  improved  in  condition  by  any  process  of  manufacture  or  other  means.  But 
if  it  be  impracticable  to  produce  such  declaration  at  the  time  of  making  entry,  bond  may  be  given  for 
the  production  thereof.     (Synopsis,  14653.) 

Collectors,  with  concurrence  of  naval  officers,  if  any,  may  waive  the  record  evidence  of  clearance  and 
above  declaration,  and  in  lieu  thereof  accept  other  satisfactory  evidence  of  exportation,  in  the  case  of 
domestic  goods  on  which  no  drawback  has  been  allowed,  valued  at  not  over  $100,  if  satisfied  that  the 
failure  to  produce  the  record  evidence  did  not  result  from  wilful  negligence  on  the  part  of  the  importers. 

In  default  of  observance  of  the  foregoing  requirements,  imported  merchandise  will  be  treated  as 
foreign. 

Should  it  appear  that  any  internal-revenue  tax  was  remitted  or  refunded  by  way  of  drawback,  on  the

APPLICATIONS  FOR  REVIEW  UNDER  SECTION  15  OF  THE  ADMINISTRATIVE  ACT. 


X896. 
Department  Circular  No.  44. 


%xtnsnm  gtepartwjettt, 


Division  of  Customs. 

office  of  THE   SECRETARY. 
Washington,  D.  C,  March  16,  1896. 

To  Collectors  and  other  Officers  of  the  Customs: 

As  some  perplexity  appears  to  exist  among  appraising  and  classifying  officers  of  customs  as  to  the 
effect  of  decisions  rendered  by  the  United  States  General  Appraisers,  the  Department  now  instructs  such 
officers  that  appraisements  of  values  made  by  the  Board,  under  Section  13  of  the  Act  of  June  10,  1890, 
are  final  and  conclusive,  as  to  such  values,  and  appraisers  should  always  be  governed  thereby  in  similar 
cases. 

Whenever  a  decision  has  been  made  by  the  Board  under  Section  14  of  the  above  act,  in  regard  to  the 
classification  of  any  kind  of  merchandise  and  no  appeal  has  been  taken  to  the  courts  within  the  prescribed 
period,  under  Section  15  of  the  said  act,  such  decision  will  govern  the  liquidation  of  the  particular  case 
which  was  the  subject  of  the  decision.  In  the  absence  of  such  appeal  and  of  contrary  instructions,  all 
similar  goods  will  be  treated  in  liquidation  in  accordance  with  the  classification  established  by  the  Board. 
Should  appeal  be  taken  by  the  Government  against  such  decision,  the  classification  will  continue  to  be 
made  by  collectors  in  accordance  with  that  which  was  the  subject  of  protest  by  the  importer.  Due  notice 
will  be  given  of  the  result  of  every  appeal  and  collectors  will  thereafter  be  guided  by  the  judgment  of 
the  court. 

"Whenever  protest  has  been  filed  against  the  collector's  action  and  the  final  decision  of  the  court 
shall  be  in  favor  of  the  claim  made  by  the  importer  upon  any  contention  regarding  the  revenue  laws, 
reliquidation  of  the  entries  thereby  affected  will  be  made,  and  duties  wrongfully  exacted,  if  any,  will  be 
refunded  as  provided  by  existing  regulations. 

While  the  decisions  of  the  Board  do  not,  under  the  law,  control  any  case  except  that  which  was  under 
review  by  the  Board,  a  proper  uniformity  of  procedure  wjj.1  be  best  promoted  by  the  rules  above  set 
forth. 

Section  15  of  the  Act  of  June  10,  1890,  provides  that,  "if  *  *  *  the  collector  *  *  *  shall  be 
dissatisfied  with  the  decision  of  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers  *  *  *  as  to  the  construction  of  the 
law  and  the  facts  *  *  *  "he  "may  within  thirty  days  next  after  such  decision  and  not  afterwards, 
apply  to  the  circuit  court  of  the  United  States  *  *  *  for  review  of  the  question  of  law  and  fact 
involved  in  such  decision." 

The  Department  instructs  collectors  that  no  such  application  for  review  shall  be  made  by  them,  except 
with  the  expressed  approval  of  the  Department.     This  inhibition  is  considered  proper  in  view  of  the 


desirability  o^nnifotiiicoiistnycti^ns  of  law  and  is  established  under  the  following  opinion  rendered  by 
the  Honorable  Attorney  -General  on  Jnly  27,  1895 : 
"  The  Secretary  of  the  TreQ$$jjvr.S 

Sir:  I  am  in  receipt  of  your  letter  of  July  26, 1895,  requesting  an  opinion  whether  or  not  in  a  case  in 
which  the  General  Appraisers  have  decided  that  an  article  is  not  dutiable,  Section  15  of  the  Act  of  June 
10,  1890  (26  Statutes,  138),  in  so  far  as  it  confers  upon  the  collector  the  power,  in  case  he  is  dissatisfied 
with  the  decisions  of  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers,  to  apply  for  a  review  of  their  decisions,  repeals 
the  authority  conferred  by  Section  2652  of  the  Revised  Statutes,  upon  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury,  to 
control  the  officers  of  customs  in  the  administration  of  the  revenue  laws. 

Section  2652,  Eevised  Statutes,  is  as  follows : 

'  It  shall  be  the  duty  of  all  officers  of  the  customs  to  execute  and  carry  into  effect  all  instructions  of 
the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury  relative  to  the  execution  of  the  revenue  laws ;  and  in  case  any  difficulty 
shall  arise  as  to  the  true  construction  or  meaning  of  any  part  of  the  revenue  laws,  the  decision  of  the 
Secretary  of  the  Treasury  shall  be  conclusive  and  binding  upon  all  officers  of  the  customs.' 

"The  decisions  of  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury  upon  all  questions  as  to  the  construction  or  meaning 
of  any  part  of  the  revenue  laws  are,  by  this  section,  made  conclusive  upon  all  customs  officers. 

"This  law  has  been  in  force  since  1842,  and  still  remains  part  of  the  revenue  system  of  the  United 
States. 

"A  later  statute  does  not  abrogate  a  prior  one  unless  such  intention  is  expressed,  or  the  two  are  so 
entirely  inconsistent  that  they  can  not  stand  together. 

"Section  15  of  the  Act  of  June  10, 1890,  provides  that  'the  collector  or  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury,' 
if  dissatisfied,  may  apply  for  a  review  of  the  questions  of  law  and  fact  involved  in  decisions  of  the  Board 
of  General  Appraisers.  This  does  not  mean  that  the  collector  may  appeal  against  the  decision  or  wishes 
of  the  Secretary,  but  that,  as  either  may  be  the  officer  who  ultimately  acts  for  the  Government,  the  right 
of  appeal  is  given  to  either,  as  the  case  may  be.  But  if  the  Secretary  has  decided  any  matter,  no  collector 
can  by  appeal  question  such  decision. 

•"A  collector  is  merely  a  subordinate  of  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury,  and  no  intention  to  give  him 
such  right  as  against  his  superior  is  to  be  gathered  from  the  act  in  question. 

"  My  opinion  is  that  Section  2652  is  in  full  force,  notwithstanding  anything  that  is  in  Section  15,  and 
that  it  is  the  duty  of  the  collector  to  follow  the  decision  and  instructions  of  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury 
in  all  matters  relating  to  the  revenue  laws. 

"  Very  respectfully,  Judson  Harmon, 

' ' Attorney-  General. ' ' 

Chief  officers  of  customs  are  further  instructed  to  make  prompt  report  to  the  Department  whenever  a 
decision  is  received  from  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers  which  in  their  opinion  should  be  taken  to  the 
courts  for  review,  and  with  each  report  of  this  kind  they  will  submit  a  statement  of  the  reasons  which 
have  governed  such  opinion.

Acting  Secretary.

OFFICE  OF 


COMMISSIONER  OF  INTERNAL  REVENUE, 

Washington,  D.  C,  March  20, 1896. 

Sealed  proposals  will  be  received  until  1  o'clock  p.  m.  of  April  22,  1896,  for  furnishing  this  office 
with  such  paper,  to  be  used  in  the  printing  of  United  States  internal-revenue  stamps  during  the  fiscal  year 
ending  June  30,  1897,  as  may  be  from  time  to  time  ordered. 

The  paper  must,  in  respect  to  composition,  sizing,  strength,  and  calendering,  be  equal  to  the  samples 
of  the  paper  now  used  in  the  printing  of  internal-revenue  stamps  which  are  to  be  found  for  examination 
at  the  office  of  the  Commissioner  of  Internal  Eevenue — the  degree  of  sizing,  calendering,  and  strength  to 
be  such  as  may  be  prescribed  by  the  Commissioner  of  Internal  Revenue,  with  the  approval  of  the  Secre- 
tary of  the  Treasury — and  must  be  free  from  clay  or  other  adulteration,  thread-knots,  grit,  or  other  foreign 
substances.  A  proportion  of  chemically  prepared  wood  fiber  (not  exceeding  40  per  cent)  will  be  permitted 
in  the  composition.  Each  sheet  of  paper  shall  be  made  distinctive  by  being  closely  watermarked  with 
the  letters  "U.  S.  I.  R."  in  such  manner  that  each  square  inch  of  the  sheet  shall  bear  some  portion  thereof. 

The  quantity  required  under  the  contract  contemplated  by  this  circular  will  be  about  800,000  pounds, 
and  will  be  white,  plain  green,  or  such  other  color,  not  more  expensive,  as  may  at  any  time  be  prescribed 
by  the  Commissioner  of  Internal  Revenue,  with  the  approval  of  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury,  but  the 
coloring  material  used  must  not  be  such  as  to  be  injurious  to  persons  handling  the  paper. 

The  paper  is  to  be  manufactured  and  delivered  iu  such  quantities  and  in  sheets  of  such  sizes  and 
weights  as  this  office  may  from  time  to  time  order,  and  must  be  counted,  examined,  and  separated  into 
lots  of  1,000  sheets,  each  hundred  to  be  separated  by  a  paper  tag  and  each  lot  tied  with  strong  twine. 

The  paper  is  to  be  manufactured  under  the  supervision  of  an  agent  of  the  Government,  who  shall 
have  access  to  all  departments  of  the  mill  where  the  special  paper  is  being  manufactured,  and  under  the 
protection  of  guards  to  be  stationed  at  the  mill ;  and  the  contractor  will  be  required  to  provide,  without 
charge,  in  the  building  in  which  the  paper  is  made,  rooms  suitably  furnished,  to  be  used  as  an  office  by 
such  agent  and  for  the  persons  designated  to  guard  the  paper  delivered,  and  also  a  room  in  which  to 
store  it  until  shipped ;  and  he  will  be  further  required  to  conform  to  such  reasonable  regulations  as  may 
be  made  by  the  Commissioner  of  Internal  Revenue,  with  the  approval  of  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury, 
to  prevent  the  improper  removal  from  the  mill  of  the  paper  manufactured  under  the  contract.  All 
paper  will  be  receipted  for  by  the  agent  at  the  mill,  subject  to  future  examination,  and  the  contractor 
will  be  required  to  furnish  perfect  paper  with  which  to  replace  any  returned  to  him  as  defective. 

The  contractor  will  be  required  to  sign  a  written  contract  and  to  commence  the  manufacture  of  the 
paper  at  such  time  after  June  30,  1896,  as  the  Commissioner  of  Internal  Revenue  shall  designate,  and 


will  also  be  required  to  enter  into  a  bond  in  the  sum  of  $10,000,  with  approved  sureties,  for  the  faithful 
execution  of  the  contract.  The  contract  will  bind  the  contractor  to  manufacture  the  special  paper  for 
the  United  States  only. 

Bills  accruing  under  the  contract  will  be  paid  monthly. 

Bidders  will  state  in  their  proposals  the  price  or  prices  per  pound  for  the  paper,  deliverable  at  the 
Treasury  Department,  in  the  city  of  "Washington,  District  of  Columbia,  securely  packed  in  the  presence 
and  under  the  direction  of  the  agent  of  the  Department  stationed  at  the  mill,  in  wooden  boxes  strapped 
with  iron,  sealed  and  marked  ready  for  shipment,  all  at  the  expense  of  the  contractor  ;  and  it  is  expressly 
stipulated  that  in  case  it  shall  be  at  any  time  necessary,  in  the  opinion  of  the  Commissioner  of  Internal 
Bevenue,  to  require  shipment  of  paper  by  express,  instead  of  by  the  ordinary  freight  delivery,  the  Govern- 
ment shall  not  be  responsible  for  the  cost  of  transportation  except  to  the  extent  of  the  ascertained  differ- 
ence between  the  express  rate  and  the  rate  by  freight. 

All  paper  returned  from  the  Department  to  the  contractor  as  defective,  for  which  he  is  required,  as 
hereinbefore  stated,  to  furnish  paper  to  replace  the  same,  shall  be  returned  at  the  expense  of  the  contractor, 
aud  the  paper  furnished  in  place  thereof  shall  be  delivered  at  his  expense  at  the  Treasury  Department  as 
aforesaid. 

The  contractor  will  be  required  to  furnish  new  dandy  rolls  for  watermarking  the  paper,  unless  those 
now  owned  by  the  Government  can  be  used,  and  will  be  required  to  pay  all  expenses  connected  with  the 
repairing  of  such  dandy  rolls  from  time  to  time  as  necessity  may  require.  Such  rolls  shall  be  manufac- 
tured (and  repaired,  if  necessary)  under  the  supervision  of  an  agent  of  the  Government,  and  will  become 
and  remain  the  property  of  the  United  States. 

Each  proposal  shall  be  accompanied  by  a  written  guaranty,  signed  by  two  responsible  persons,  that 
if  the  award  is  made  to  the  proponent  the  contract  and  bond  will  be  executed  promptly  on  the  making  of 
the  award. 

Bids  will  not  be  considered  unless  made  by  persons  actually  engaged  in  the  manufacture  of  paper, 
and  the  right  to  reject  any  or  all  bids,  and  to  waive  informalities,  in  case  it  shall  be  deemed  to  the 
interest  of  the  Government  so  to  do,  is  hereby  reserved. 

The  bids  will  be  opened  on  Wednesday,  the  22d  day  of  April,  1896,  at  1  o'clock  p.  m.,  in  the  office 
of  the  Commissioner  of  Internal  Eevenue,  and  bidders  are  invited  to  be  present. 

Bids  should  be  indorsed  "Proposals  for  Internal-Eevenue Stamp  Paper,"  and  addressed  to  the  "Com- 
missioner of  Internal  Revenue,  Washington,  D.  C."  No  blanks  for  such  proposals  are  furnished,  nor  are

CABE  AND  CUSTODY  OF  BLANK  FORMS,  ETC. 

Office  of  THE   SECRETARY, 

Washington,  D.  0.,  April  7,  1896. 

To  Heads  of  Bureaus,  Treasury  Department, 

and  Chiefs  of  Divisions,  Secretary's  Office  : 

Special  attention  is  hereby  directed  to  the  following  requirements  of  Department  Circular  No.  95, 
of  1894 : 

(•&)  At  least  a  year's  supply  of  regular  or  standard  forms  should  be  ordered  at  a  time, 
(c)  Blank  books  should  be  ordered  at  least  four  months, 

And— 

Blank  forms,  official  paper  and  envelopes,  two  months  before  being  needed  for  use. 

******* 

Much  of  the  delay  experienced  in  receiving  supplies  ordered  from  the  Public  Printer  is  occasioned 
by  the  numerous  "specials"  that  are  constantly  being  pushed  ahead  of  the  regular  work.  This  evil 
has  reached  such  embarrassing  proportions  as  to  require  its  discontinuance. 

It  is  therefore  directed  that  in  each  bureau  of  the  Department  and  division  of  the  Secretary's  Office 
the  blank  forms,  blank  books,  letterheads,  and  envelopes  be  placed  in  the  custody  of  a  competent  person,

OFFICE  OF  THE 

GENERAL  SUPERINTENDENT.  U.  S.  LIFE-SAVING  SERVICE. 

Washington,  D.  C,  May  2, 1896. 

Information  has  come  to  this  office  that  members  of  life  saving  crews  in  some  localities  engage  in 
ferrying,  boating,  fishing,  hunting,  and  other  employments,  during  the  active  season,  seriously  competing 
with  persons  who  depend  upon  such  occupations  for  a  livelihood.  It  further  appears  that  in  some 
instances  crews  have  neglected  their  duties  and  otherwise  infringed  the  regulations  of  the  Service  in  such 
pursuits. 

It  is,  therefore,  directed  that  hereafter  no  member  of  a  life-saving  crew  shall,  during  the  active 
season,  engage  in  ferrying,  boating,  oystering,  crabbing,  fishing,  shooting  game,  gathering  moss,  or  in 
similar  employment,  for  pay  or  market,  in  competition  with  other  persons  engaged  in  such  business.

This  supplemental  agreement  made  and  entered  into  this  twenty-fifth  day  of  March,  one  thousand 
eight  hundred  and  ninety-six  by  and  between  the  Canadian  Pacific  Eailway  Company,  the  Allan  Steam- 
ship Line,  the  Hansa  Steamship  Line,  the  Grand  Trunk  Bail  road  Company,  the  Dominion  Steamship 
Line  and  the  Beaver  Steamship  Line,  parties  of  the  first  part,  and  Herman  Stump,  Commissioner  General 
of  Immigration  of  the  United  States  of  America,  on  behalf  of  the  United  States  of  America,  party  of  the 
second  part,  witnesseth : 

Whereas,  The  several  parties  hereto  heretofore,  to  wit,  on  the  seventh  day  of  September,  A.  D.  1893, 
at  Montreal,  Canada,  did  make  and  enter  into  a  certain  agreement  providing  for  the  establishment  of 
immigrant  inspection  stations  at  certain  ports  in  the  Dominion  of  Canada  and  for  other  purposes  therein 
particularly  set  forth  ; 

And  whereas,  In  addition  to  the  ports  therein  specified  as  landing  ports  in  the  said  Dominion  of 
Canada,  the  Beaver  Steamship  Line,  one  of  the  parties  hereto,  desires  also  to  use  the  port  of  St.  John, 
New  Brunswick,  as  a  lauding  port  for  immigrants  during  the  winter  months; 

And  whereas,  The  party  of  the  second  part  claims  that  through  wrong  information  supplied  by 
immigrants  to  the  steamship  companies,  immigrants  destined  for  the  United  States  are  sometimes  ticketed 
to  a  point  in  the  Dominion  of  Canada  from  whence  they  afterwards  proceed  to  a  destination  in  the  United 
States,  and  in  consequence  thereof  the  names  of  such  immigrants  do  not  appear  upon  the  lists  or  mani- 
fests furnished  to  the  United  States  inspectors  under  section  4  of  the  aforementioned  agreement; 

And  whereas,  Also  by  an  act  of  the  Congress  of  the  United  States  of  America  approved  August 
eighteenth,  A.  D.  1894,  the  per  capita  tax  upon  aliens  entering  the  United  States  was  increased  from  fifty 
cents  to  one  dollar  : 

Now,  therefore,  In  consideration  of  the  continuance  of  the  mutual  benefits  and  advantages  accruing 
to  the  several  parties  hereto  by  the  agreement  hereinbefore  referred  to,  and  also  in  consideration  of  such 
additional  benefits  and  advantages  as  are  hereinafter  provided  for,  it  is  covenanted  and  agreed  that  the 
aforementioned  agreement  of  September  seventh,  A.  D.  1893,  be  amended  and  supplemented,  as  follows : 

I.  By  adding  to  the  ports  named  as  landing  ports  in  the  first  clause  of  the  aforementioned  agreement 
of  September  seventh,  A.  D.  1893,  the  port  of  St.  John,  New  Brunswick : 

II.  That  all  immigrants  destined  to  the  United  States  provided  for  by  the  aforementioned  agreement, 
who  shall  not  have  been  listed  on  the  manifest  supplied  to  the  United  Statas  inspectors  at  the  port  of 
entry,  and  who  within  thirty  days  from  the  date  of  their  arrival  at  any  one  of  the  ports  named  in  the  said 
agreement  and  this  supplemental  agreement,  shall  apply  for  admission  or  enter  the  United  States  within 
the  meaning  and  intent  of  the  said  agreement,  and  a  per  capita  tax  of  one  dollar  on  all  such  immigrants 
shall  be  paid  as  provided  for  by  section  6  thereof;  and  access  to  ships,  manifest  of  passengers  shall  be 
afforded,  or  extracts  therefrom  furnished  to  the  United  States  inspectors  whenever  the  same  shall  be 
requested,  to  verify  the  lauding  of  any  immigrants. 

HI.  That  section  6  of  said  agreement  of  seventh  September,  A.  D.  1893,  be  amended  by  striking  out 
the  words  "Fifty  cents"  wherever  they  occur  in  said  section  and  inserting  in  lieu  thereof  the  words  '"One 
dollar." 

IV.  And  it  is  further  covenanted  and  agreed,  that  if  any  immigrant,  who  has  landed  at  any  one  of 
the  ports  named  in  the  aforementioned  agreement  of  seventh  September,  A.  D.  1893,  as  amended  by  this 
supplemental  agreement,  shall  apply  for  admission  into  the  United  States  within  thirty  days  after  arrival 
at  said  port  without  the  certificate  provided  for  by  section  3  of  the  said  agreement,  and  shall  be  debarred 
from  entry  into  the  United  States  under  the  laws  of  the  United  States  regulating  immigration,  or  if  it  be 


ascertained  that  the  said  immigrant  has  been  previously  refused  admission  into  the  United  States  by  any 
immigration  official,  the  said  railway  and  steamship  companies  parties  to  this  agreement  hereby  under- 
take and  agree  to  return  said  immigrant  to  the  port  of  landing  or  transport  him  to  such  place  upon  their j 
line  of  travel  as  said  immigrant  is  willing  to  go  most  remote  from  the  borders  of  the  United  States. 

V.  It  is  further  covenanted  and  agreed  that  the  several  provisions  of  this  supplemental  agreement 
shall  hereafter  have  the  same  force  and  effect  as  if  they  had  been  originally  incorporated  in  the  afore- 
mentioned agreement  of  seventh  September,  A.  D.  1893,  and  that  the  said  agreement  of  seventh  Septem- 
ber, A.  I).  iSito,  shall  be  construed  and  continued  in  effect  as  if  these  provisions  were  originally  therein.

amended  by  section  3  of  the  supplemental  agreement,  may  be  collected. 

II.  That  any  European  immigrant  who  has  been  refused  a  certificate  of  admission  into  the  United

BUREAU  OF  NAVIGATION, 

Washington,  D.  C,  May  12,  1896. 
To  Collectors  of  Customs  and  others: 

The  attention  of  Collectors  of  Customs  and  others  concerned  is  invited  to  the  following  act  of 
Congress  approved  May  9,  1896,  extending  the  time  during  which  imported  cargoes  of  vessels  may  be 
unladen : 

Be  it  enacted  by  the  Senate  and  House  of  Representatives  of  the  United  States  of  America  in  Congress 
assembled,  That  section  twenty- eight  hundred  and  eighty  of  the  Revised  Statutes  of  the  United  States  be 
amended  so  as  to  read  as  follows : 

"Sec.  2880.  Whenever  any  merchandise  shall  be  imported  into  any  port  of  the  United  States  from 
any  foreign  port,  in  any  vessel,  at  the  expiration  of  ten  working  days  if  the  vessel  is  less  than  five  hundred 
tons  register,  and  within  fifteen  working  days  if  it  is  of  five  hundred  tons  register  and  less  than  one 
thousand,  and  within  twenty  working  days  if  it  is  of  one  thousand  tons  register  and  less  than  fifteen 
hundred,  and  within  twenty-five  working  days  if  it  is  of  fifteen  hundred  tons  register  and  upward,  not 
including  legal  holidays  and  days  when  the  condition  of  the  weather  prevents  the  unlading  of  the  vessel 
with  safety  to  its  cargo,  after  the  time  within  which  the  report  of  the  master  of  any  vessel  is  required  to 
be  made  to  the  collector  of  the  district,  if  there  is  found  any  merchandise  other  than  has  been  reported 
for  some  other  district  or  some  foreign  port,  the  collector  shall  take  possession  thereof;  but  with  the 
consent  of  the  owner  or  consignee  of  any  merchandise,  or  with  the  consent  of  the  owner  or  master  of  the 
vessel  in  which  the  same  may  be  imported,  the  merchandise  may  be  taken  possession  of  by  the  collector 
alter  one  day's  notice  to  the  collector  of  the  district.  All  merchandise  so  taken  shall  be  delivered  pursuant 
to  the  order  of  the  collector  of  the  district,  for  which  a  certificate  or  receipt  shall  be  granted." 

'     Article  125,  Eegulations  of  1892,  is  amended  so  as  to  read  as  follows  : 

R.  S.  2880,  2966,  2969.  Art.  125.  When  merchandise  remains  on  board  a  vessel  after  the  expiration 
of  legal  time  for  discharging  the  same  the  collector  may  take  possession  thereof. 

The  legal  time  allowed  is  as  follows : 

Vessels  of  less  than  500  tons,  10  working  days  after  entry. 

Vessels  of  500  tons  and  less  than  1,000  tons,  15  working  days  after  entry. 

Vessels  of  1,000  tons  and  less  than  1,500  tons,  20  working  days  after  entry. 

Vessels  of  1,500  tons  and  upwards.  25  working  days  after  entry. 

The  working  days  of  a  vessel  are  to  be  computed  by  excluding  the  date  of  entry,  legal  holidays,  and 
stormy  days  when  discharge  is  impracticable  with  safety  to  cargo. 

All  merchandise  found  on  board  at  the  expiration  of  these  periods,  riot  reported  for  transshipment  to 
some  other  district  or  some  foreign  port  or  place,  must  be  taken  possession  of  by  the  collector.  But  with 
the  consent  of  the  owner  or  consignee,  or  of  the  owner  or  master  of  the  vessel,  such  merchandise  may  be 
taken  possession  of  after  one  day's  notice  to  the  collector  of  such  consent.  One  working  day  must  intervene 
between  the  giving  of  the  notice  and  the  obtaining  of  the  order  to  discharge.

Washington,  D.  C:,  May  20,  1896. 

The  following  regulations,  in  the  matter  of  the  evidence  required  by  the  accounting  officers  as  proof 
of  payment  of  vouchers,  are  published  for  the  information  and  guidance  of  disbursing  officers  of  the  United 
States : 

1.  Vouchers  must  be  stated  in  the  name  of  the  person,  firm,  company,  or  corporation  rendering  the 
service  or  furnishing  the  articles  for  which  payment  is  made. 

2.  If  the  payee  be  a  firm,  the  receipt  to  the  voucher  should  be  in  the  usual  firm  signature,  signed  by 
a  member  of  the  firm  ;  if  an  incorporated  or  unincorporated  company,  the  receipt  should  be  in  the  com- 
pany name,  followed  by  the  autograph  signature  of  the  officer  (with  his  title)  authorized  to  receive  the 
money  and  receipt  therefor. 

3.  Evidence  of  the  authority  of  the  officer  receipting  for  an  incorporated  or  unincorporated  company 
must  accompany  the  voucher  unless  the  payment  is  made  by  a  check  drawn  on  a  United  States  depository 
to  the  order  of  the  company,  and  that  fact,  with  the  date  and  number  of  the  check  and  name  of  the  deposi- 
tory, is  stated  on  the  voucher. 

4.  When  a  disbursing  officer  is  satisfied  that  an  attorney  or  agent  is  authorized  to  receipt  for  his 
principal,  whether  an  individual,  firm,  company,  or  corporation,  the  receipt  of  the  principal  by  the 
attorney  or  agent  will  be  sufficient,  without  proof  of  authority  accompanying  the  voucher,  provided  that 
payment  is  made  by  a  check  drawn  on  a  United  States  depository  and  payable  to  the  order  of  the  principal, 
and  the  memorandum  required  in  the  preceding  paragraph  is  made  upon  the  voucher. 

5.  These  regulations  will  not  affect  any  additional  regulations  of  the  several  Departments,  but  are 
intended  as  a  statement  of  all  that  is  required  by  the  accounting  officers  as  proof  that  payments  are  made 
to  the  proper  persons.

ENTRY  OF  GOODS  FOB  IMMEDIATE  TRANSPORTATION,  UNDER  ACT  OF  JUNE  10,  1880,  MAY 
BE  MADE  AT  THE  PORT  OF  FIRST  ARRIVAL  ON  PRO  FORMA  INVOICE,  IN  ABSENCE  OF 
CERTIFIED  INVOICE,  AND  WITHOUT  BOND.

Office  op  THE   SECRETARY 


of  THE  SEGRETAR' 

Washington,  D.  C,  May  25,  1896. 
To  Collectors  and  other  Officers  of  the  Customs  : 

The  question  has  been  presented  to  the  Department  whether,  under  the  act  of  June  10,  1880,  entries 
of  imported  goods  valued  at  over  $100,  for  immediate  transportation,  may  be  legally  made  at  the  port  of 
first  arrival  on  a  pro  forma  invoice  without  the  filing  of  a  bond  at  such  port  for  the  production  of  a  certi- 
fied invoice,  in  view  of  the  provisions  of  section  4  of  the  act  of  June  10,  1S90,  which  prescribes  that 
"except  in  the  case  of  personal  effects  accompanying  the  passenger,  no  importation  of  any  merchandise 
exceeding  one  hundred  dollars  in  dutiable  value  shall  be  admitted  to  entry  without  the  production  of  a 
duly  certified  invoice." 

The  question  was  submitted  to  the  Solicitor  of  the  Treasury,  and  in  his  reply  (annexed  hereto)  that 
officer  advises  the  Department  that  section  4  of  the  Administrative  Act  does  not  apply  to  entries  made 
at  the  first  port  of  arrival  under  the  act  of  June  10,  1880,  and  that  entries  for  immediate  transportation, 
under  the  last-named  act,  may  be  made  at  the  port  of  first  arrival  on  pro  forma  invoices,  in  the  absence 
of  certified  invoices,  without  the  filing  of  a  bond  at  such  port  for  the  production  of  certified  invoices. 

The  Department  accepts  this  opinion  as  a  rule  for  the  guidance  of  officers  of  the  customs  in  the  cases 
to  which  it  refers.  Nothing  herein  shall  dispense  with  the  filing  of  the  proper  bond  on  entry  at  the  port 
of  destination. 

CHARLES  S.  HAMLIN, 

Acting  Secretary. 


Department  of  Justice, 
Office  of  the  Solicitor  of  the  Treasury, 

Washington,  D.  C,  May  18,  1896. 

Sir  :  Acting  Secretary  Hamlin,  under  date  of  the  15th  instant,  incloses  letters  of  the  collectors  of 
customs  at  New  York  and  San  Francisco,  relating  to  entries  for  "immediate  transportation,"  under  the 
act  of  June  10,  1880,  and  requests  my  opinion  as  to  whether  entries  for  such  transportation  may  be  made 
at  the  port  of  first  arrival  on  pro  forma  invoices  in  the  absence  of  certified  invoices,  and  whether  the  filing 
of  bonds  at  such  port  for  the  production  of  such  certified  invoices  is  requisite. 

It  is  suggested  that  the  decisions  of  the  Department  on  this  point  have  not  been  uniform,  and  that  a 
definite  settlement  of  the  question  is  desired. 

It  is  admitted  on  the  one  hand  that  the  procedure  at  the  first  port  is  mainly  for  the  purpose  of  secur- 
ing proper  record  of  the  importation  and  of  obtaining  the  material  for  liquidation  of  the  ship's  manifest ; 
and,  on  the  other  hand,  it  is  claimed  that  under  section  4  of  the  Administrative  Act  no  entry  can  be  made 
of  which  the  value  exceeds  $100  without  the  production  of  a  certified  invoice  or  the  filing  of  a  bond 
to  produce  the  same. 


It  appears  to  have  been  frequently  decided  that  the  "immediate  transportation"  law  was  enacted 
for  the  purpose  of  establishing  the  equalization  of  conditions  at  the  interior  and  exterior  ports ;  so  that 
merchandise  arriving  under  an  "immediate  transportation"  entry  is  to  be  treated  in  all  respects  at  the 
interior  port  as  if  it  were  the  port  of  first  arrival,  and  that  the  formalities  at  the  port  of  first  arrival  are 
merely  such  as  are  indispensable  to  the  custom-house  records. 

It  is  conceded  also  by  the  Acting  Secretary  that  no  entry  can  be  made  at  the  port  of  delivery  without 
certified  invoice,  or,  in  its  absence,  a  proper  bond  for  its  production.  The  special  question  now  pro- 
pounded relates  to  the  port  at  which  such  bond  shall  be  filed. 

In  G.  A.  968,  the  General  Appraisers  held  that — 

"The  manifest  purpose  of  the  act  of  June  10,  1880,  was  to  place  importers  at  interior  ports  upon  a 
footing  as  nearly  as  practicable  with  importers  at  the  exterior  ports.  The  terms  of  the  act  sustain  the 
theory  that  the  entry  required  at  the  exterior  port  is  simply  for  the  purpose  of  clearing  the  records  of 
such  port,  and  of  properly  safeguarding  the  shipment  of  the  merchandise  to  its  destination,  where  real 
entry  thereof  may  be  made,  duly  verified  by  the  required  declaration  of  the  owner,  importer,  or  ultimate  consignee.'' " 

It  seems  to  me  that  while  an  entry  is  required  to  be  made  at  the  seaboard  port  of  arrival,  such  entry 
is  only  formal  in  character.  The  object  of  such  entry  is  for  the  purpose  of  tracing  and  identifying  the 
same,  or  estimating  the  duties,  or  for  comparison  of  the  invoices  and  bills  of  lading  of  the  goods,  by 
description  and  quantity  of  the  goods  that  have  actually  arrived.  Upon  the  arrival  of  goods  at  the  interior 
port  of  destination,  the  conductor,  master,  or  agent  is  required  to  report  to  the  collector  at  such  port  the 
fact  of  such  arrival,  and  to  deliver  the  manifest  to  him.  Proceedings  are  then  taken  by  way  of  appraise- 
ment, liquidation,  etc.,  as  in  the  case  of  goods  entered  for  liquidation  at  the  port  of  first  arrival  in  this 
country. 

The  last  sentence  of  section  4  of  the  act  of  June  10,  1890,  provides  that  when  entry  of  merchandise 
exceeding  one  hundred  dollars  in  value,  is  made  by  a  statement  in  the  form  of  an  invoice,  the  collector 
shall  require  a  bond  for  the  production  of  a  duly  certified  invoice. 

The  act  of  June  10,  1880,  providing  for  the  "immediate  transportation"  of  dutiable  goods,  directs 
that  the  collector  at  the  port  of  first  arrival  shall  allow  the  merchandise  to  be  shipped  immediately  after 
the  entry  prescribed  in  section  2  of  the  act,  has  been  made.  Section  2  prescribes  that  the  collector  at  the 
port  of  first  arrival  shall  retain  in  his  office  a  permanent  record  of  the  merchandise  to  be  forwarded  to 
the  port  of  destination,  and  such  record  shall  consist  of  a  copy  of  the  invoice  and  entry,  whereon  the 
duties  shall  be  estimated  as  closely  as  possible  on  the  merchandise  so  shipped ;  but  no  oaths  shall  be 
required  on  the  said  entry. 

This  section  further  prescribes  that  the  merchandise  shall  not  be  subject  to  appraisement  and  liquida- 
tion of  the  duties  at  the  port  of  first  arrival,  but  shall  undergo  such  examination  as  the  Secretary  of  the 
Treasury  shall  deem  necessary  to  verify  the  invoice  ;  and  the  same  examination  and  appraisement  shall 
be  required  and  had  at  the  port  of  destination  as  would  have  been  required  at  the  port  of  first  arrival  if 
such  merchandise  had  been  entered  for  consumption  or  warehouse  at  such  port.  The  act  proceeds  to 
direct  how  the  merchandise  shall  be  transported  ;  the  quadrupli cation  of  invoices ;  the  ports  to  which  it 
may  be  transported,  etc.,  etc. 

I  do  not  think  that  section  4  of  the  Administrative  Act,  prescribing  that  no  entry  can  be  made  of 
which  the  value  exceeds  $100  without  the  production  of  a  certified  invoice  or  the  filing  of  a  bond  to  pro- 
duce the  same,  applies  to  goods  imported  under  the  act  of  June  10,  1880. 

I  am,  therefore,  of  the  opinion  that  entries  for  "immediate  transportation"  under  the  act  of  June 
10, 1880,  may  be  made  at  the  port  of  first  arrival  on  pro  forma  invoices,  in  the  absence  of  certified  invoices, 
and  that  the  filing  of  a  bond  at  such  port  for  the  production  of  certified  invoices  is  not  requisite  in  such 


Yery  respectfully,  F.  A.  Reeve,  Solicitor.

Washington,  D.  C,  May  27,  1896. 
To  Collectors  and  other  Officers  of  the  Custo?ns  : 

The  Department  has  received  an  opinion  rendered  on  March  26,  1896,  by  the  United  States  circuit 
court  for  the  northern  district  of  California,  on  the  appeal  of  the  collector  at  San  Francisco  from  the 
decision  of  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers,  in  the  matter  of  the  classification  of  currants,  of  which 
the.  following  is  a  copy : 

In  the  Circuit  Court  of  the  United  States,  Ninth  Circuit  and  Northern  District  of  California. 

' '  Zante  currants. ' ' 

In  the  Matter  of  the  Application  and  Petition  of  John  H.  Wise,  Esq.,  Collector  * 
of  Customs  for  the  Port  of  San  Francisco,  State  and  Northern  District  of 
California,  for  a  Review  of  the  Questions  of  Law  and  Fact  Involved  in  a  I  „ 
Decision  of  the  Board  of  United  States  Appraisers  on  Duty  at  New  York,  /  J*iU». 

in  the  Matter  of  the  Classification  of  Certain  Currants,  Merchandise 
Imported  by  S.  L.  Jones  &  Co. 


An  application  and  petition  was  filed  by  the  collector  of  customs  for  the  port  of  San  Francisco  for  a 
review,  under  section  15  of  the  Customs  Administrative  Act  of  June  10,  1890,  of  the  decision  of  the 
Board  of  United  States  General  Appraisers  in  relation  to  the  classification  of  and  duty  on  certain  currants 
imported  by  S.  L.  Jones  &  Co.  The  Board  of  General  Appraisers  held  that  the  currants  imported  were 
not  Zante  currants  and,  therefore,  did  not  come  within  the  provisions  of  paragraph  217  of  tariff  act 
of  August  28,  1894,  commonly  known  as  the  Wilson  Bill,  but  did  come  within  the  provisions  of  paragraph 
489,  and  were  not  subject  to  duty  as  being  not  otherwise  provided  for.  Decision  of  the  Board  of  General 
Appraisers  reversed. 

H.  S.  Foote,  Esq.,  United  States  district  attorney,  and  Samuel  Knight,  Esq.,  assistant  United  States 
attorney.     A.  P.  Van  Duzer,  Esq.,  for  importers  S.  L.  Jones  &  Co. 

Morrow,  district  judge : 

This  is  an  application  and  petition  by  John  H.  Wise,  collector  of  customs  of  the  port  of  San  Francisco, 
for  a  review  of  the  questions  of  law  and  fact  involved  in  the  decision  of  the  Board  of  United  States  General 
Appraisers,  at  the  port  of  New  York,  in  the  matter  of  the  classification  of  an  importation  of  500  barrels 


of  currants  at  the  port  of  San  Francisco,  under  the  act  of  Congress,  entitled  "An  act  to  reduce  taxation,  to 
provide  revenue  for  the  Government,  and  for  other  purposes,"  approved  August  28,  1894,  and  commonly 
known  as  the  Wilson  Bill.  The  currants  were  imported  on  March  19,  1895,  from  Liverpool,  on  board  of 
the  British  ship  Drumburton,  and  were  invoiced  as  "Plum  pudding  label  J.  Currants,"  and  were  so 
entered  at  the  custom  house.  They  came  originally  from  Patras,  Greece.  Thereafter,  on  April  12,  1895, 
the  collector  of  customs  classified  said  currants  as  "  Zante  currants,"  and  as  dutiable,  under  paragraph  217 
of  the  act  of  Congress  above  referred  to,  at  the  rate  of  one  and  a  half  cents  per  pound.  The  importers 
entered  their  protest  against  this  ruling  of  the  collector  and  appealed  to  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers, 
then  on  duty  at  the  port  of  New  York,  claiming  that  said  article  was  not  Zante  currants,  but  currants 
grown  in  the  provinces  of  Greece,  on  the  mainland,  and,  therefore,  free  of  duty  as  dried  fruit  not  other- 
wise provided  for,  and  that  said  currants  are  not  commercially  known  as  raisins  or  dried  grapes.  The 
Board  of  General  Appraisers  decided  in  favor  of  the  importers.  To  reverse  this  decision,  the  collector 
brings  the  question  before  this  court,  under  section  15  of  the  Customs  Administrative  Act  of  June  10, 1890, 
for  a  review  and  for  a  construction  of  law  respecting  the  classification  of  said  currants  and  the  duty,  if 
any,  imposed  thereon. 

It  is  objected,  at  the  outset,  that  this  court  has  no  jurisdiction  of  this  matter  for  the  reasons,  first,  that 
the  decision  of  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers  is  final,  and,  second,  that  the  collector  had  no  authority 
from  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury  to  bring  the  matter  into  this  court  for  a  review  of  the  decision  of  the 
Board.  These  objections  are  disposed  of  by  the  language  of  section  15  of  the  Customs  Administrative 
Act  of  June  10, 1890,  which  provides  as  follows  :  "That  if  the  owner,  importer,  consignee,  or  agent  of  any 
imported  merchandise,  or  the  collector,  or  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury,  shall  be  dissatisfied  with  the 
decision  of  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers,  as  provided  in  section  fourteen  of  this  act,  as  to  the  con- 
struction of  the  law  and  facts  respecting  the  classification  of  such  merchandise  and  the  rate  of  duty 
imposed  thereon  under  such  classification,  they,  or  either  of  them,  may,  within  thirty  days  next  after 
such  decision,  and  not  afterwards,  apply  to  the  circuit  court  of  the  United  States,  within  the  district  in 
which  the  matter  arises,  for  a  review  of  the  questions  of  law  and  fact  involved  in  such  decision." 
Nothing  is  said  about  first  obtaining  authority  from  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury  to  bring  the  matter 
within  the  jurisdiction  of  the  circuit  court,  and  it  is  evident  that  no  such  authority  is  required. 

The  collector  of  customs  claims  that  the  currants  in  question  are  Zante  currants,  and  that  they  are 
expressly  included  in  paragraph  217  of  the  present  tariff  act,  which  reads  as  follows:  "Plums,  prunes, 
figs,  raisins,  and  other  dried  grapes,  including  Zante  currants,  one  and  one-half  cents  per  pound."  The 
importers  contend  that  the  currants  are  not  Zante  currants,  but  they  are  Provincial  currants ;  that  is, 
that  they  come  from  Patras,  Greece,  on  the  mainland,  and  not  from  the  Island  of  Zante,  and  are  covered 
by  paragraph  489,  which  places  on  the  free  list  "Fruits,  green,  ripe,  or  dried,  not  specially  provided  for 
in  this  act." 

The  evidence  now  before  the  court  for  its  consideration  consists  (1)  of  the  testimony  and  exhibits 
introduced  before  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers  and  incorporated  in  their  return  to  the  order  of  this 
court  of  July  17,  1895,  directing  them  to  transmit  the  record  of  said  matter  and  the  evidence  taken  by 
them  therein,  together  with  a  certified  statement  of  the  facts  involved  in  the  case,  and  their  decision 
thereon ;  (2)  of  the  testimony  and  exhibits  introduced  in  this  court  before  the  special  referee  in  San 
Francisco. 

Without  entering  into  a  minute  consideration  as  to  the  effect  and  sufficiency  of  the  evidence  taken 
before  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers  at  New  York,  it  is  sufficient  to  say  that  it  is  completely  overcome 
bv  the  evidence  taken  in  this  court  before  the  referee.  Eight  witnesses  were  called  by  the  protestant  in 
New  York ;  several  of  them  professed  to  have  more  or  less  knowledge  concerning  Zante  currants,  but  none 
of  them  appear  to  be  experts.  They  certainly  were  not  expert  viticulturists  or  horticulturists,  nor,  so  far 
as  their  testimony  shows,  had  any  of  them  made  a  special  study  of  the  Zante  currant  or  of  currants  in 
general.  Several  of  them  admitted  that  they  were  not  experts  and  knew  but  little  about  Zante  currants. 
Such  knowledge  as  they  did  possess  appears  to  have  been  acquired  in  the  course  of  dealing  in  dried  fruits 
and  by  reason  of  importations  made  of  currants,  and  while  sufficient  for  the  ordinary  purposes  of  trade, 
it  can  not  be  said  to  be  sufficiently  competent  to  be  accepted  as  binding  expert  testimony.  Four  of  the 
witnesses  identified  a  sample  of  the  importation  as  being,  not  a  Zante  currant,  but  a  Patras  currant  from 
the  mainland.  Four  other  witnesses  testified  that  the  expression  "  Zante  currants  "  was  understood  to 
mean  currants  from  the  Island  of  Zante  alone  and  not  from  the  mainland.  All  these  witnesses  were  sub- 
jected to  little,  if  any,  cross-examination.  One  witness,  in  the  course  of  his  examination,  stated  that  a 
Zante  or  Patras  currant  was  a  fruit  other  than  a  grape.  This  was  clearly  an  error,  and  is  completely  and 
conclusively  overcome  and  refuted  by  the  unanimous  testimony  of  all  the  witnesses,  both  for  the  Govern- 
ment and  the  importers,  who  testified  in  this  court  before  the  referee. 

The  testimony  taken  before  the  referee  is  in  marked  contrast  to  that  given  before  the  Board  at  New 
York.  The  witnesses,  on  the  part  of  the  Government,  some  23  in  number,  were  experts  in  every  sense 
of  the  word,  and  proved  themselves  thoroughly  conversant  with  the  Zante  currant,  not  only  botanically 


but  commercially  as  well.  Among  them  were  professors  of  viticulture  and  horticulture  at  the  State  and 
Stanford  Universities,  several  experienced  vineyardists  and  growers  of  raisins,  and  also  dealers  and 
importers  of  the  Zante  currant  on  this  coast.  Some  of  them  testified  that  they  had  made  experiments  in 
the  growing  of  Zante  currants  in  this  State.  They  were  subjected  to  a  rigid  cross-examination.  The 
protestaut  produced  but  three  witnesses,  one  of  whom  was  the  importer,  and  all  of  whom  displayed  a 
conspicuous  want  of  knowledge  upon  the  subject.  Such  opinions  cau  not  stand  as  against  the  positive 
statements  of  the  experts  in  the  case,  who  have  made  the  question  one  of  actual  study,  observation,  and 
experiment.  It  would  prolong  this  opinion  to  an  unwarrantable  length  to  rehearse  the  testimony  given. 
It  preponderates  largely  to  the  effect  that  the  term  "Zante  currants"  is  a  well-known  commercial  expres- 
sion among  importers,  dealers,  and  growers  of  raisins,  and  relates  to  and  comprehends  a  kind  of  raisin 
made  from  a  small,  seedless  grape  grown  not  only  in  the  Island  of  Zante,  but,  also,  and  to  a  much 
greater  exeut,  on  the  mainland  of  Greece  and  other  neighboring  localities.  "Zante  currants"  is  simply 
its  English  name.  It  derives  the  name  of  "currants"  from  the  fact  that,  in  times  past,  it  was  shipped 
from  the  city  of  Corinth,  Greece.  In  German  it  is  called  " Korinthen ; "  in  French,  "raisin  de 
Corinthe;"  in  Spanish,  "pasasde  Corinto."  It  is  a  raisin  grape  as  distinguished  from  the  shrub  cur- 
rant, with  wbichits  name  may  confound  it,  but  from  which  it  is  entirely  distinct,  the  former  belonging 
to  the  grapevine  family,  or  vitis  vinefera,  of  plants,  the  latter  to  the  shrub,  or  ribes.  A  Zante  currant, 
on  the  vine,  is  a  small-sized  grape;  when  picked  and  dried  it  is  a  "dried  grape"  or  kind  of  raisin, 
whose  popular  and  commercial  designation  is  "  Zante  currants." 

In  the  Century  Dictionary,  "currant"  is  defined  as  "A  very  small  kind  of  raisin  or  dried  grape 
imported  from  the  Levaut,  chiefly  from  Zante  and  Cephalonia,  and  used  in  cooking."  Precisely  the 
same  definition  is  given  in  Webster's  International  Dictionary,  issued  in  1890.  In  the  Encyclopedia 
Brittanica  (editiou  1877;  the  following  definition  is  found  :  "  Currant.  The  dried,  seedless  fruit  of  a 
variety  of  the  grapevine,  vitis  vinefera,  cultivated  principally  in  Zante,  Cephalonia,  Ithaca,  and  near 
Patras  in  the  Morea."  In  the  Standard  Dictionary  of  the  English  Language,  published  in  1885,  a  cur- 
rant is  defined  to  be  "a  small  seedless  raisin  imported  from  the  Levant  and  called  usually  dried  currant 
and  Za7i1e  currant." 

While  it  is  true  that  dictionaries  are  not,  of  themselves,  evidence,  still  they  may  be  referred  to  "as 
aids  to  the  memory  and  understanding  of  the  court."  (Nix  v.  Heddend,  149  U.  S.,304,  307,  and  cases  there 
cited.) 

It  may  be  interesting,  in  this  connection,  to  refer  briefly  to  the  testimony  of  Dr.  Gustav  Eisen,  curator 
of  the  Academy  of  Sciences,  of  San  Francisco,  as  acknowledged  authority  on  viticulture  and  horticulture, 
who  testified  that  he  had  made  the  Zante  currant  one  of  the  objects  of  his  researches  and  studies.  He 
gave  the  following  account  of  the  history  of  that  grape  or  vine :  ' '  The  first  time  we  hear  of  the  Zante 
currant  is  about  the  year  1333,  when  we  know  from  some  manuscripts  and  other  publications  in  England 
that  there  was  considerable  trade  carried  on  between  the  Venetians  and  the  English  in  northern  Europe, 
generally  in  a  fruit  that  was  known  as  the  '  raisin  of  Corinth.'  That  fruit  trade  in  '  Corinth,'  or  '  Corinths,' 
as  they  are  known  in  several  European  languages  to  day,  was  carried  on  for  several  hundred  years,  until 
the  time  when  the  Turks  conquered  Greece.  Then  it  was  to  their  interest  to  prevent  the  foreign  traders 
from  entering  the  Gulf  of  Corinth.  That  was  some  time  in  the  16th  century.  *  *  *  In  other  words, 
the  Zante  currant  was  originally  only  grown  on  the  mainland  of  Greece,  and  shipped  from  the  town  of 
Corinth.  The  principal  growth  was  along  the  Gulf  of  Corinth.  After  the  Turks  conquered  Greece,  the 
trade  in  currants  died  out  completely.  Then  the  currant  was  later  on  introduced  to  the  Island  of  Zante, 
in  about  the  middle  of  the  16th  century,  1550  or  1560,  or  thereabouts,  *  *  *  in  order  to  create  a  new 
industry  for  the  islands.  Since  that  time  the  currants  have  been  known  generally  as  Zante  currants, 
regardless  of  their  place  of  growth.  For  a  long  time  afterwards  there  were  no  currants  grown  at  all,  or 
at  least  there  were  no  currants  shipped  from  the  mainland  of  Greece.  That  is  of  much  later  date  when 
the  currant  was  again  reintroduced  from  Zante  to  the  mainland  of  Greece.  ,  But  during  the  last  few  years, 
or  during  the  last  years,  the  trade  and  cultivation  of  the  currauts  has  increased  enormously  on  the  main- 
land of  Greece,  and  to  such  an  extent  that  now  the  proportion  of  currants  from  the  mainland  is  a  great 
many  times  more  than  that  on  the  island.  While  the  island  produces  about  eight  thousand  tons,  the 
mainland  of  Greece  produces  one  hundred  and  forty  thousand  or  one  hundred  and  fifty  thousand  tons  of 
Zante  currants."  E.  W.  Hilgard,  professor  of  agriculture  at  the  State  University,  testified  that  a  Zante 
currant  was  "a  raisiu  made  from  a  small  grape  which  grows  in  the  Ionian  Islands,  and  also  in  the  archi- 
pelago there ;  also  on  the  mainland  of  Asia  Minor.  They  are  dried  and  prepared  in  various  ways,  and 
shipped  to  the  whole  world.  It  is  the  only  region  that,  so  far,  has  produced  tliis  grape  to  perfection." 
Without  going  further  into  the  evidence,  it  is  enough  to  say  that,  as  a  whole,  the  following  four  proposi- 
tions of  fact  were,  to  my  mind,  conclusively  established :  (1)  That  the  currants  comprising  the  importa- 
tion in  question,  of  which  Exhibit  "  1 "  is  a  sample,  are  Zante  currants ;  (2)  that  Zante  currants  are  a 
kind  of  raisin ;  (3)  that  Zante  currants  are  grapes  dried  ;  and  (4)  that  Zante  currants  are  not  the  product 
exclusively  of  the  Island  of  Zante,  but  they  are  produced  also  on  the  mainland  of  Greece,  in  the  archi- 


pel  ago,  and  other  places,  and  in  much  larger  quantities  than  on  the  island.  Being  Zante  currants,  they 
come  within  the  language  of  paragraph  217,  as  above  set  forth,  and  are  subject  to  the  duty  of  one  and  a 
half  cents  per  pound  therein  prescribed. 

But  counsel  for  the  importers  claims  that  the  use  of  the  word  "  Zante"  indicates  that  Congress  meant 
to  limit  the  imposition  of  the  duty  on  currants  produced  only  in  the  Island  of  Zante,  and  that,  as  the 
importation  iuvolved  in  this  case  came  originally  from  Patras,  in  Greece,  on  the  mainland,  and  is  a 
product  of  the  provinces  of  Greece,  therefore  it  is  not  subject  to  the  duty  imposed  by  paragraph  217,  but, 
on  the  contrary,  it  is  entitled  to  free  entry  under  paragraph  489,  which  exempts  from  duty  "Fruits,  green, 
ripe,  or  dried,  not  especially  provided  for  in  this  act." 

In  interpreting  a  name  or  expression  applied  to  articles  upon  which  duties  of  importation  are  laid,  it 
is  well  settled  that  Congress  uses  such  terms  in  their  ordinary  commercial  sense  rather  than  in  their 
distinctive  or  technical  sense.  As  was  said  in  Andrews  on  the  Eevenue  Laws  (p.  1S1):  "It  may  be 
asserted,  as  a  general  principle,  that  tariff  laws  are  to  be  construed  according  to  the  commercial  meaning 
of  the  terms  used  in  them.  They  are  written  in  the  language  of  commerce  rather  than  the  language  of 
science;  and  if  resort  was  not  had  to  the  terms  and  usages  of  commerce  for  their  interpretation,  they 
would  operate  with  injustice  to  the  importer,  and  involve  the  revenue  officers  in  constant  controversy."

In  Tyne  v.  Grinnell,  supra,  it  was  said  by  Mr.  Justice  Clifford  that  "Tariff  laws  are  passed  to  raise 
revenue;  and,  for  that  purpose,  substances  are  classed  according  to  the  general  usage  and  known  denomi- 
nations of  trade.  Whether  a  particular  article  is  designated  by  one  name  or  another  in  the  country  of  its 
origin,  or  whether  it  is  a  simple  or  mixed  substance,  is  a  matter  of  very  little  importance  in  the  adjust- 
ment of  our  revenue  laws,  as  those  who  frame  such  laws  are  chiefly  governed  by  the  appellations  which 
the  articles  bear  in  our  own  markets  and  in  our  domestic  and  foreign  trade.  {United  States  v.  Smith,  9 
Wheat.,  438.)  Laws  regulating  the  payment  of  duties  are  for  practical  application  to  commercial  opera- 
tions, and  are  to  be  understood  in  a  commercial  sense ;  and  this  court,  sixty  years  ago,  decided  that  Con- 
gress intended  that  they  should  be  so  administered  and  understood.  ( United  States  v.  Goodale,  8  Pet.,  279.) 
Such  laws,  say  this  court,  are  intended  for  practical  use  and  application  by  men  engaged  in  commerce ; 
and  hence  it  has  become  a  settled  rule,  in  the  interpretation  of  statutes  of  the  description,  to  construe  the 
language  adopted  by  the  legislature,  and  particularly  in  the  denomination  of  articles,  according  to  the 
commercial  understanding  of  the  terms  used.     {Elliott  v.  Swartout,  10  Pet.,  151.) 

Congress  must  be  understood,  says  Taney,  C.  J.,  as  describing  the  article  upon  which  the  duty  is 
imposed,  according  to  the  commercial  understanding  of  the  terms  used  in  the  law,  in  our  own  markets ; 
and  the  court  held  in  that  case  that  Congress,  in  imposing  the  duty,  must  be  considered  as  describing  the 
article  according  to  the  commercial  understanding  of  the  terms  used  in  the  act  of  Congress  when  the  law 
was  passed  imposing  the  duty.  (Curtis  v.  Martin,  3  How.,  109.)  Suffice  it  to  say,  without  multiplying 
authorities,  that  the  rule  of  law  is  settled,  that  the  question,  whether  an  imported  article  is  or  is  not 
known  in  commerce  by  the  word  or  terms  used  in  the  act  imposing  the  duty,  is  a  question  of  fact  for  the 
jury,  and  not  a  question  of  construction;  and  of  course  it  must,  in  a  case  like  the  present,  be  determined 
by  the  court  as  a  question  of  fact,  the  issues  of  fact  as  well  as  of  law,  being  submitted  to  the  court.  {Law- 
rence v.  Allen,  7  How.,  797.)  In  Am.  Net  and  Twine  Co.  v.  Worthington  (141  TJ.  S.,  468,  471),  this 
principle  was  thus  briefly  and  succinctly  summed  up :  "It  is  a  cardinal  rule  of  this  court  that,  in  fixing 
the  classification  of  goods" for  the  payment  of  duties,  the  name  or  designation  of  the  goods  is  to  be  under- 
stood in  its  known  commercial  sense,  and  that  their  denomination  in  the  market  when  the  law  was  passed 
will  control  their  classification  without  regard  to  their  scientific  designation,  the  material  of  which  they 
may  be  made  or  the  use  to  which  they  may  be  applied."  The  word  "commercial"  in  this  connection,  is 
to  be  understood  in  its  comprehensive  sense  of  buying,  selling,  and  exchange  in  the  general  sales  or  traffic 
of  our  own  markets.  (18  Opinions  of  Attorney-General,  530,  532;  Eamshaw  v.  Cadwalader,  145  TJ.  S.,  247, 
258.)  It  is,  also,  a  rule  in  the  interpretation  of  revenue  laws  that,  "where  Congress  has  designated  an 
article  by  a  specific  name  and  imposed  a  duty  upon  it,  general  terms  in  the  same  act,  though  sufficiently 
broad  to  comprehend  such  article,  are  not  applicable  to  it ;  in  other  words,  the  article  will  be  classified  by 
its  specific  designation,  rather  than  under  a  general  description."  (Homer  v.  The  Collector,  1  Wall.,  4S6 ; 
Arthur  v.  Lahey,  96  TJ.  S.,  112;  Arthur  v.  Stephani,  96  TJ.  S.,  125;  Moviusv.  Arthur,  95  TJ.  S.,  144;  Am. 
Net  and  Twine  Co.  v.  Worthington,  141  TJ.  S.,  468,  474.) 

Applying  these  rules  of  interpretation  to  the  facts  of  the  case  at  bar,  and  it  is  obvious  that  the 
term.  "Zante  currants,"  used  in  paragraph  217  of  the  Wilson  Act,  was  employed  in  its  commercial  sense, 


as  understood  iu  this  country,  and  applies  to  all  currants  of  that  name  or  kind  wherever  produced  in 
foreign  countries,  and  that  it  has  no  reference,  technically,  to  currauts  coming  alone  from  the  Island  of 
Zante.  No  restrictions  or  exceptions  as  to  places  are  either  expressly  or  impliedly  made.  The  mere  fact 
that  the  currants,  comprising  the  importation  in  this  case,  bear  the  name  of  "Zante,"  an  island  in  the 
archipelago,  is  of  itself  devoid  of  particular  significance  as  indicating  that  Congress  meant  to  tax  currants 
which  come  only  from  the  Island  of  Zante.  The  tariff  act,  in  the  enacting  clause,  applies  to  "  all  articles 
inipoited  from  foreign  countries."  As  a  matter  of  fact,  the  evidence  tended  to  show  that  much  larger 
quantities  of  Zante  currants,  so-called,  are  grown  and  exported  from  the  provinces  of  Greece  than  from 
the  Island  of  Zante,  and  that  those  grown  on  the  mainland  are  still  known,  commercially,  iu  this  country, 
as  Zante  currants.  In  other  words,  "  Zante  currants"  is  the  commercial  name  for  this  variety  of  grape 
when  dried  into  raisins.  It  would  be  unreasonable  to  suppose  that  Congress,  in  imposing  duties  on  Zante 
currants  in  the  general  language  employed,  intended  to  tax  those  coming  from  the  Island  of  Zante  alone, 
and  not  those  which  come,  in  much  larger  quantities,  from  other  localities.  Such  an  interpretation  would 
result  in  an  unfair  and  unwarranted  discrimination  between  foreign  places  of  produce,  which,  in  the 
absence  of  clear  and  unambiguous  words  to  the  contrary,  should  not  be  imputed  to  Congress.  It  is  but 
laii  to  assume  that,  had  it  intended  to  limit  the  imposition  of  import  duties  on  Zante  currants  grown  and 
exported  from  that  island  only,  it  would  have  so  stated  in  clear  and  plain  language.  Counsel  for  the 
importers  claims,  however,  that  the  fact  that  the  statute  has  the  capital  letter  "  Z"  in  the  word  "Zante"  indi- 
cates that  Congress  intended  that  currants  from  that  island  alone  should  be  taxed.  This  argument  is  without 
merit.  The  use  of  the  capital  "Z"  is  of  no  significance  as  indicating  such  au  intent  as  claimed.  The 
observance  of  grammatical  propriety  would  require  the  use  of  the  capital.  It  is  a  proper  name,  and  it  is 
a  well-settled  rule  of  grammatical  construction  that  proper  names  used  as  adjective  elements,  such  as  the 
word  "Zante"  in  the  phrase  "Zante  currants,"  should  retain  the  capital  letter.  While  it  is  true  that 
the  article  in  this  case  derives  its  name,  etymologically,  from  the  Island  of  Zante,  yet,  according  to  the 
greater  weight  of  the  evidence,  the  term  "Zante  currants,"  understood  commercially  in  this  country, 
applies  to  that  article  wherever  produced,  whether  it  be  on  the  Island  of  Zante,  or  on  the  mainland  in  the 
provinces  of  Greece,  or  elsewhere. 

It  is  further  claimed  by  counsel  for  the  importers,  that  in  view  of  the  fact  that  Congress  dropped  the 
expression  "or  other,"  contained  in  the  provision  in  the  tariff  law  of  1883  (Morrison  Act),  paragraph 
293  thereof,  which  imposed  a  duty  of  one  cent  per  pound  on  "currants,  Zante  or  other,"  and,  also,  in  the 
provisiou  in  the  tariff  law  of  1890  (McKinley  Act),  paragraph  578  thereof,  which  declared  "currauts, 
Zante  or  other,"  free  of  duty,  indicates  that,  in  referring  to  Zante  currants  in  paragraph  217  of  the 
present  law,  it  had  reference  exclusively  to  currants  grown  on  the  Island  of  Zante.  This  was  the  view 
which  seems  to  have  been  taken  by  the  Board  of  Appraisers. 

The  opinion  of  the  Board  contains  this  language:  "In  the  tariffs  named  'or  other'  followed  'Zante.' 
The  omission  of  these  words,  the  use  of  the  word  'including,'  and  the  specific  enumeration  of  Zante 
currants  in  paragraph  217  would  indicate  that  Congress  excluded  from  the  operation  of  the  paragraph 
all  but  Zante  currants.  If  it  was  the  intention  to  make  all  currants  dutiable  it  was  very  simple  to  say 
'all  other  dried  grapes  including  currants,'  and  not  as  it  reads,  'including  Zaute  currants.'  "  The  Board 
found  that:  (1)  "  The  goods  were  not  Zante  currants :  (2)  they  are  not  commercially  known  as  raisins 
or  dried  grapes."  The  appraisers  were  influenced  largely,  no  doubt,  in  their  conclusions,  by  the  evidence 
introduced  before  them  tending  to  show  that  this  importation  came  originally  from  Patras,  Greece,  and 
that  the  term  "  Zante"  referred  exclusively  to  currants  produced  on  the  Island  of  Zante.  But,  as  stated 
above,  this  evidence  was  met  and  completely  overcome  by  the  testimony  of  the  experts  and  other 
witnesses  in  this  court,  who  had  had  superior  opportunities  for  study,  observation,  and  experiment,  and 
were,  therefore,  in  a  much  better  position  to  become  familiar  with  and  know  the  Zante  curraut  and  its 
commercial  relation  and  designation.  It  is  urged,  in  this  connection,  that  the  decision  of  the  Board  of 
Appraisers  should  not  be  reversed  where  there  is  a  substantial  conflict  of  the  evidence.  Several  cases  in 
support  of  this  position  are  cited  by  counsel  for  the  importers,  among  them  that  of  In  re  Bing  et  al.  (06 
Fed.Bep.,  727).  The  court  there  held  that  it  would  not  set  aside  the  decision  of  the  Board,  even  if 
against  the  weight  of  the  evidence,  where  the  Board  had  sufficient  evidence  to  warrant  its  finding.  But 
such  a  rule  can  have  little,  if  any,  application  to  a  case  like  the  present,  where  additional  testimony  of 
the  highest  character  was  taken,  and  where  the  ultimate  question  decisive  of  the  controversy  is  as  much 
one  of  law  as  of  fact. 

My  opinion  is,  that  the  classification  of  the  article  imported  and  involved  in  this  case  as  "Zante  cur- 
rants," made  by  the  collector  of  the  port  of  San  Francisco  is  correct,  and  that  it  is  therefore  subject  to 
the  duty  prescribed  in  paragraph  217,  of  one  and  a  half  cents  per  pound.  The  opposite  decision  reached 
by  the  Board  of  General  Appraisers  is  erroneous  and  should  be  reversed,  and  it  is  so  ordered. 

(Indorsed:  Opinion.     Filed  March   26,  1896.     W.  J.  Costigan,  clerk,  by  W.  B.  Beaizley,  deputy 

clerk.) 


You  will  be  guided  by  this  decision  iu  all  cases  arising  hereafter  at  your  port. 

The  question  has  arisen  as  to  the  reliquidation  of  entries  liquidated  free  of  duty,  under  a  decision  of 
the  Board  of  General -Appraisers,  rendered  April  1,  1895,  which  decision  was  accepted  by  the  Depart- 
ment and  promulgated  (Synopsis  16004)  prior  to  the  appeal  taken  by  the  collector  at  San  Francisco  in 
the  case  iu  which  the  United  States  circuit  court  rendered  the  decision  above  quoted. 

On  March  16,  1887,  in  a  letter  to  the  collector  at  Philadelphia,  regarding  a  somewhat  similar  condi- 
tion, the  Department  used  the  following  language : 

"It  is  questionable  whether  the  right  to  reliquidate  entries  at  advanced  rates,  and  to  proceed  against 
importers  for  the  amount  thus  found  due  after  the  duties  have  been  paid  and  the  goods  have  passed  into 
consumption,  has  been  extended  to  the  Government.  In  any  event  the  Department  is  satisfied  that  such 
an  interpretation  of  the  statute  would  be  at  least  inequitable  and  unjust,  and  contrary  to  the  principles 
set  forth  iu  its  decision  of  April  12,  1879  (Synopsis  3972),  inasmuch  as  the  parties,  having  disposed  of  the 
merchandise  at  prices  based  upon  duties  already  collected,  have  uo  means  of  reimbursing  themselves  for 
any  additional  duties  subsequently  collected  by  the  Government." 

The  collector  was  thereupon  directed  to  apply  the  decision  of  the  Department,  as  to  the  proper  classi- 
fication, only  to  such  entries  as  covered  merchandise  arriving  subsequent  thereto,  and  merchandise 
remaining  in  the  possession  of  the  Government. 

In  accordance  with  the  views  expressed  in  this  Synopsis,  the  Department  now  holds  that  no  reliqui- 
dation shall  be  made  of  free  entries  of  currants  which  were  completed  and  the  merchandise  delivered, 
before  the  issuance  of  Department's  notification  to  collectors,  on  April  4,  1896,  of  the  recent  decision  of 
the  United  States  circuit  court  for  the  ninth  circuit.

To  Collectors  and  other  Officers  of  the  Customs  : 

The  appended  opinions,  dated,  respectively,  the  20th  and  26th  ultimo,  of  The  Honorable  the  Attorney- 
General,  as  to  the  proper  construction  of  certain  articles  in  the  treaty  between  the  United  States  and 
China,  signed  March  17, 1S94,  and  proclaimed  by  the  President  December  8, 1894,  relating  to  the  departure 
from  and  return  to  this  country  of  Chinese  laborers,  are  published  for  the  information  aud  guidance  of  all 
concerned. 

CHARLES  S.  HAMLIN, 

Acting  Secretary. 


Department  of  Justice, 

Washington,  D.  C,  May  20,  1896. 

Sir  :  I  have  the  honor  to  acknowledge  your  communication  of  May  13.  asking  an  official  opinion  as 
to  the  construction  and  operation  of  Article  ill  of  the  Convention  of  1894  between  the  United  States  aud 
China  (28  Stat.,  1211). 

This  article  provides  that  "Chinese  subjects,  being  officials,  teachers,  students,  merchants,  or  travel- 
lers for  curiosity  or  pleasure,  but  not  laborers,"  when  seeking  admission  into  the  United  States,  ''may 
produce  a  certificate  from  their  government  or  the  government  where  they  last  resided."  The  question 
has  arisen  whether  Chinese  subjects  belonging  to  the  privileged  classes  above  mentioned,  aud  who  are 
residents  of  the  British  colony  of  Hongkong,  may  obtain  admission  to  the  United  States  upon  production 
of  a  certificate  signed  by  the  registrar  general  in  that  colony.  I  assume,  for  the  present  purposes,  that 
the  registrar  general  is  the  proper  representative  of  the  Colonial  Government. 

While  called  a  convention,  the  document  to  which  you  refer  is  clearly  a  treaty  within  the  meaning  of 
the  Constitution  of  the  United  States.  It  is,  therefore,  so  far  as  its  provisions  are  self-executing,  a  part 
of  the  supreme  law  of  the  land.  It  is  my  opinion  that  the  provisions  of  the  article  uuder  consideration 
are  self-executing.  Its  language  is  clear.  It  requires  a  certificate  from  the  Government  of  the  colony  of 
Hongkong  ;  it  requires  nothing  more  than  that.  Its  requirements  would  not  be  satisfied  by  a  certificate 
from  the  Government  of  China. 

The  act  of  July  5,  1884,  ch.  220,  sec.  6,  requires  that  certificates  in  similar  cases  should  be  issued  by 
the  Chinese  Government,  "or  of  such  other  foreign  government  of  which  at  the  time  such  Chinese  person 
shall  be  a  subject.'"  Prior,  therefore,  to  the  treaty  of  1894,  a  certificate  from  the  authorities  at  Hongkong- 
would  have  been  insufficient  in  the  cases  now  under  consideration,  and  a  certificate  from  the  Chinese 
Government  would  have  been  necessary. 

You  ask  my  opinion  whether  the  treaty  "waives  or  modifies  the  requirement  of"  the  act  of  1884. 
As  the  treaty  is  subsequent  to  the  statute,  and  as  its  provisions  are  self-executing,  I  am  of  the  opinion 


(hat  it  does  modify  the  requirement  of  the  statute,  so  that  the  certificate  must  now  come  from  Hongkong 
and  not  from  China.  (The  Cherokee  Tobacco,  11  Wall.,  616,  621 ;  Whitney  v.  Eobertson,  124  U.  S.,  190.

Very  respectfully,  Holmes  Conrad, 

Acting  Attorney -General. 
The  Secretary  of  the  Treasury. 


Department  of  Justice, 

Washington,  D.  C,  May  26,  1896. 

Sir  :  I  have  the  honor  to  give  my  opinion,  as  requested  in  your  letter  of  the  22d  instant,  upon  the 
proper  construction,  of  Article  II  of  the  convention  between  the  United  States  and  China,  concerning  the 
subject  of  emigration,  proclaimed  March  17,  1894. 

By  Article  I  the  coming  of  Chinese  laborers  to  this  country  is  absolutely  prohibited  for  a  period  of 
ten  years.  Article  II  provides  that  such  prohibition  shall  not  apply  to  the  return  to  this  country  of 
registered  Chinese  laborers  having  certain  specified  relatives  here,  or  property,  or  debts  of  a  certain  value ; 
but  requires,  as  a  condition  of  the  right  of  such  laborer  to  return,  the  deposit  by  him  with  the  collector 
of  customs  of  the  district  from  which  he  departs  of  a  written  description  of  his  family,  property,  or 
debts.  The  collector  is  required  to  furnish  him  with  a  certificate  of  his  right  to  return.  Article  II  then 
proceeds  as  follows : 

"And  such  right  of  return  to  the  United  States  shall  be  exercised  within  one  year  from  the  date  of 
leaving  the  United  States ;  but  such  right  of  return  to  the  United  States  may  be  extended  for  an  additional 
period,  not  to  exceed  one  year,  in  cases  where  by  reason  of  sickness  or  other  cause  of  disability  beyond 
his  control,  such  Chinese  laborer  shall  be  rendered  unable  sooner  to  return,  which  facts  shall  be  fully 
reported  to  the  Chinese  consul  at  the  port  of  departure,  and  by  him  certified,  to  the  satisfaction  of  the 
collector  of  the  port  at  which  such  Chinese  subject  shall  land  in  the  United  States.  And  no  such  Chinese 
laborer  shall  be  permitted  to  enter  the  United  States  by  land  or  sea  without  producing  to  the  proper 
officer  of  the  customs  the  return  certificate  herein  required." 

Your  letter  with  its  inclosure  presents  the  case  of  three  Chinese  laborers  duly  registered  at  Boston, 
according  to  law  and  Treasury  Regulations,  and  furnished  with  proper  certificates  in  accordance  with  the 
treaty,  who  left  the  country  from  the  district  of  Vermont,  and  after  visiting  China  presented  themselves 
for  readmission  at  the  same  place  in  the  district  of  Vermont,  after  an  absence  of  almost  thirteen  months. 
They  were  refused  admission  because  the  facts  justifying  the  extension  of  the  period  of  return  were  not 
reported  "to  the  Chinese  consul  at  the  port  of  departure,  and  by  him  certified,"  etc.,  the  collector  holding 
such  port  of  departure  to  be  Canton,  China,  at  which  place  they  left;  that  country,  or  Hongkong,  a  British 
port,  at  which  they  took  ship.  It  appears  that  there  is,  of  course,  no  Chinese  consul  at  Canton,  and  that, 
for  local  and  political  reasons,  the  British  Government  permits  none  at  Hongkong. 

Your  inquiry  is  whether  the  "port  of  departure,"  at  which  the  facts  of  sickness  or  disability  are  to 
be  so  reported,  is  the  port  from  which  the  laborer  goes  from  this  country,  or  that  from  which  he  starts  on 
his  return. 

It  is  a  well-known  fact  that  Chinese  laborers  who  leave  this  country  almost  invariably  return  to  their 
own.  This  fact  was,  of  course,  well  known  to  the  framers  of  the  treaty.  They  knew  also  that  no  country 
has  consuls  at  its  own  ports.  It  seems  clear,  therefore,  that  they  could  not  have  meant  the  port  of  departure 
from  China. 

If  this  be  true,  it  appears  to  follow  that  the  framers  of  the  treaty  must  have  meant  the  port  from 
which  the  laborer  departs  from  this  country.  He  is  required  to  deposit  a  written  description  of  his 
family,  property,  or  debts,  "  with  the  collector  of  customs  of  the  district  from  which  he  departs." 

While,  at  first  glance,  the  phrase  "port  of  departure"  may  appear,  from  its  use  in  connection  with 
the  phrase  "port  at  which  such  Chinese  subject  shall  land  in  the  United  States,"  to  indicate  the  point  of 
beginning  of  the  voyage  of  return,  this  appearance  must  give  way  before  the  manifest  necessity  of  so 
construing  the  treaty,  if  possible,  as  to  give  it  the  operation  which  the  parties  plainly  intended  it  to 
have.  Besides,  the  two  phrases  may  both  fairly  be  construed  as  referring  to  the  United  States,  requiring 
the  fact  of  unavoidable  detention  to  be  reported  to  the  Chinese  consul  at  the  port  where  the  person  desir- 
ing to  return  left  this  country,  and  the  certificate  thereof  to  be  sent  to  the  collector  of  the  port  at  which 
he  desires  to  reenter  it. 

As  Chinese  consuls  in  this  country  are  received  by  our  Government  and  subject  to  recall  on  their 
request,  it  was  naturally  willing  to  trust  to  their  good  faith,  and  the  Chinese  Government,  one  of  the 
parties  to  the  treaty,  had  the  right  to  require  of  them  the  service  it  imposes.     The  only  other  possible 


construction  is  that  the  phrase,  "Chinese  consul  at  the  port  of  departure,"  was  intended  to  designate  our 
consuls  at  Chinese  ports,  but  such  construction  would  require  au  entire  chauge  of  the  language  used. 
When  that  meaning  was  intended,  Article  III  shows  that  the  makers  of  the  treaty  knew  how  to  express 
it.  That  article,  in  providing  for  the  rights  of  Chinese  officials,  students,  merchants,  etc.,  to  come  to 
and  reside  in  the  United  States,  authorizes  "a  certificate  from  their  government  or  the  government 
where  they  last  resided  vis6d  by  the  diplomatic  or  consular  representative  of  the  United  States  in  the 
country  or  port  whence  they  depart." 

While  the  language  of  the  section  you  submit  is  not  explicit,  and  the  question  presented  can  not, 
therefore,  be  answered  with  entire  freedom  from  doubt,  my  opinion  is  that  the  officer  to  whom  the  facts 
of  sickness  or  disability  are  to  be  reported,  is  the  consul  who  represents  the  Chinese  Government  at  the 
place  whence  the  laborer  left  the  United  States.  While  the  words  used,  "port"  and  "land,"  usually 
relate  to  a  sea  voyage,  they  were  used  because  the  Chinese  generally  go  and  come  by  sea,  and  not  because 
it  was  the  intention  to  limit  the  right  to  return  to  such  as  travel  in  that  way.  This  is  apparent  from  the 
last  sentence  of  the  section:  "And  no  such  laborer  shall  be  permitted  to  enter  the  United  States  by  land 
or  sea  without  producing  to  the  proper  officer  of  the  customs  the  return  certificate  herein  required." 
Instances  where  expressions  suggested  by  the  commonest  form  of  the  subject  dealt  with  have  been  held  to 
apply  to  all  its  forms,  are  not  uncommon  in  judicial  decisions. 

Moreover,  the  word  "port"  does  not  always  meau  a  seaport  when  it  is  used  in  connection  with  our 
customs  officers,  and  the  word  "land"  is  not  necessarily  limited  to  disembarkation  from  a  ship. 

It  appears  to  be  necessary  for  the  laborer  to  leave  this  country  at  a  place  which  is  a  port  and  is 
within  the  jurisdiction  of  a  Chiuese  consul,  and  that  he  should  return  to  it  at  a  port  of  entry  where  there 
is  a  collector ;  but  as  his  right  to  depart  and  return  by  land  as  well  as  by  sea  is  recognized  by  the  treaty, 
these  places  need  not  be  seaports. 

As  the  manifest  object  of  this  clause  of  the  treaty  was  to  relieve  returning  Chinese  laborers  from  the 
consequences  of  sickness  or  casualty,  the  argument  from  inconvenience  is  not  without  weight.  Detentions 
from  these  causes  are  quite  likely  to  occur  after  the  commeucemeut  of  a  long  voyage  which,  in  their 
absence,  would  accomplish  the  return  before  the  expiration  of  the  year.  Sickness,  storms,  or  the  many 
mishaps  of  ocean  travel,  may  require  the  statement  mentioned  in  the  treaty  on  arrival  in  the  United  States, 
although  it  seemed  unnecessary  before  starting.  These  facts  must  have  been  in  the  minds  of  the  framers 
of  the  treaty;  yet,  if  any  other  construction  be  adopted  than  that  which  I  have  indicated,  the  unfortunate 
traveler  would  have  to  return  to  the  place  from  which  he  started,  or  undergo  the  long  delay  which  would 
be  required  to  communicate  the  facts  to  the  officer  at  that  point  and  receive  his  certificate  thereof. 
Very  respectfully,  Judson  Harmon, 

Attorney-  General.

Bureau  of  Navigation. 


2Er*asimj  gjepartmjent, 


Office  of  THE  SECRETARY, 

Washington,  D.  C,  June  S.  1896. 
To  Collectors  of  Customs  and  Others: 

A  foreign  vessel  clearing  from  a  domestic  port  to  a  foreign  port  via  a  domestic  port,  where  she  is  to 
stop  for  coal,  supplies,  or  cargo,  should  proceed  under  sections  4367,  4368,  and  4369,  Eevised  Statutes, 
delivering  to  the  collector  at  the  first  port  duplicate  manifests,  properly  sworn  to,  and  obtaining  permit, 
as  in  other  cases,  to  be  presented  at  the  port  of  destination  in  the  United  States.  If  imported  cargo  be 
retained  on  the  vessel,  the  requirements  of  sections  2654,  2776,  and  2777,  Eevised  Statutes,  as  to  bond, 
must  be  observed. 

Shippers'  manifests  of  exports  should  be  accepted  by  the  collector  at  the  first  port  as  if  the  vessel 
were  to  proceed  from  such  port  directly  to  a  foieign  port,  and  returns  should  be  made  to  the  Bureau  of 
Statistics  accordingly,  the  collector  at  the  second  port  forwarding  returns  only  of  the  merchandise  laden 
at  his  port  for  export,  or  of  merchandise  laden  elsewhere,  covered  by  shipper's  manifest  presented  at  his 
port  and  not  included  in  the  returns  of  another  collector.  It  is  the  practice  for  the  master  to  file  at  the 
last  port  of  departure  for  a  foreign  port  a  full  manifest  of  the  cargo.  (Sec.  4197,  Eev.  Stat.,  S.  5644,  6893.) 
The  fee  for  the  coastwise  permit  is  $2. 

Similar  action  as  to  returns  should  be  taken  in  the  case  of  a  vessel  of  the  United  States  clearing 
coastwise  with  cargo  laden  at  one  domestic  port  for  export  in  her  via  another  domestic  port. 

Forms  483  and  5041  (Cat.  Nos.)  will  be  amended  by  the  Department  accordingly,  so  that  they  may 
show  whether  or  not  merchandise  laden  at  a  domestic  port  for  exportation  via  another  domestic  port  will 
be  included  in  the  statistical  returns  from  the  first  port.

Acting  Secretary. 


CONTRACTS  FOB  THE  CARE  OF  SEAMEN,  ETC. 


1896. 
Department  Circular  No.  85 


Marine-Hospital  Service. 

OFFICE  OF 

SUPERVISING  SURGEON-GENERAL  U.  S.  MARINE-HOSPITAL  SERVICE, 

Washington,  D.  C,  June  18, 1896. 

The  following  contracts  for  the  care  of  seamen  entitled  to  relief  from  this  Service,  for  the  fiscal  year 
ending  June  30,  1897,  are  published  for  the  information  of  accounting  officers  of  the  Treasury  Department, 
disbursing  agents,  medical  officers  of  the  Marine-Hospital  Service,  acting  assistant  surgeons,  and  customs 
officers.  This  circular  is  to  be  regarded  as  official  notification  of  the  acceptance  of  the  proposals  made 
by  the  parties  designated,  and  must  be  cited,  giving  its  number  and  date,  on  all  bills  for  the  treatment 
and  maintenance  of  seamen,  and  for  the  burial  of  deceased  patients,  as  the  authority  for  any  expenditure 
incurred  under  its  provisions.  Charges  will  be  allowed  for  the  day  of  admission  of  a  hospital  patient, 
but  not  for  the  day  of  discharge  or  death.  The  right  is  reserved  by  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury  to 
terminate  any  contract  whenever  the  interests  of  the  Service  require  it.  All  relief  must  be  furnished  in 
accordance  with  the  Eevised  Eegulations  of  the  Marine-Hospital  Service ;  and,  in  consequence  of  the 
largely  increased  expenditures  for  relief,  and  of  the  limited  sources  of  income,  it  has  become  necessary  to 
give  notice  that,  as  provided  in  the  Eegulations,  no  allowance  will  be  made  for  expenditures  incurred  at 
any  other  station  than  those  named  in  this  circular. 

Upon  admission  to  a  contract  hospital  of  a  patient  with  disease  or  injury  which,  in  the  opinion  of 
the  medical  officer,  the  acting  assistant  surgeon,  or  physician  in  charge  of  the  case,  will  require  more  than 
twenty  days'  treatment  in  hospital,  the  collector  of  customs  or  other  officer  issuing  the  permit  will  at 
once  request  authority  from  the  Marine-Hospital  Bureau  to  transfer  such  .patient  to  the  nearest  marine 
hospital,  provided  the  patient's  condition,  in  the  opinion  of  the  medical  officer,  the  acting  assistant 
surgeon,  or  physician  in  charge  of  the  case,  is  such  as  to  admit  of  transportation. 

The  attention  of  collectors  of  customs,  medical  officers,  acting  assistant  surgeons,  or  other  physicians 
in  charge  of  patients  of  the  Marine-Hospital  Service  at  contract  stations,  is  hereby  called  to  the  necessity 
of  discharging  patients  promptly  upon  the  termination  of  the  necessary  hospital  treatment,  and  without 
awaiting  the  expiration  of  the  period  authorized  in  the  permit. 

The  term  "contagious  diseases"  wherever  occurring  in  this  circular,  specific  contracts  excepted, 


includes  only  those  diseases  which,  under  usual  municipal  regulations,  are  required  to  be  treated  iu  a 
special  hospital  for  contagious  diseases.

to for  temporary  use  at  the  exhibition  entitled ,  held  at ,  on  the day  of -, 

18     .     But  if  it  be  impracticable  to  produce  such  declaration  at  the  time  of  making  entry,  bond  may  be 
given  for  the  production  thereof.     (Synopsis,  14653.) 

Collectors,  with  concurrence  of  naval  officers,  if  any,  may  waive  the  record  evidence  of  clearance  and 
above  declaration,  and  in  lieu  thereof  accept  other  satisfactory  evidence  of  exportation,  in  the  case  of 
domestic  goods  on  which  no  drawback  has  been  allowed,  valued  at  not  over  $100,  if  satisfied  that  the 
failure  to  produce  the  record  evidence  did  not  result  from  willful  negligence  on  the  part  of  the  importers. 

In  default  of  observance  of  the  foregoing  requirements,  imported  merchandise  will  be  treated  as 
dutiable. 

Should  it  appear  that  any  internal-revenue  tax  was  remitted  or  refunded  by  way  of  drawback,  on  the 
original  exportation  of  any  articles  of  the  growth,  manufacture,  or  product  of  ihe  United  States,  a  duty 
must  be  exacted  upon  their  return  equal  in  amount  to  the  tax  imposed  by  the  internal-revenue  laws  upon 
such  articles^it  the  time  of  their  reimportation,  but  all  articles  manufactured  in  bonded  warehouse  will 
be  subject  to  duty,  on  reimportation,  as  foreign  merchandise,  and  all  articles  on  which  drawback  was 
paid  will  be  liable  to  a  duty  equal  to  the  drawback  allowed. 

Duties  voluntarily  paid  on  such  returned  goods  can  not  be  refunded  in  the  absence  of  a  timely  protest 
under  section  14  of  the  act  of  June  10,  1890,  as  the  only  importations  exempted  from  protest  by  section  1 
of  the  act  of  March  3,  1875  (ISth  Statutes,  p.  469),  are  personal  and  household  effects  and  other  articles 
not  merchandise,  article  353  of  the  Eegulatious  of  1892  applying  only  to  goods  brought  in  as  personal  or 
household  effects  or  passenger's  baggage.

GENERAL   REMARKS. 

In  no  case  are  certificates  of  deposit  required  to  be  filed  with  accounts  rendered  by  Government 
officers  to  the  accounting  officers  of  the  Treasury  Department,  nor  does  such  a  disposition  of  any 
certificates  of  deposit  secure  to  the  officers  transmitting  them  proper  credits  in  their  accounts.  Credit  for 
^eposits  is  given  officers  in  the  settlement  of  their  accounts  only  upon  warrants  issued  by  the  Secretary 
of  the  Treasury,  based  upon  the  report  of  the  depositary  and  verified  by  the  original  certificate  of 
deposit.  In  taking  credit  in  their  accounts  current,  however,  for  money  deposited,  officers  should  state 
specifically  the  date  of  deposit,  with  whom  deposited,  and  the  source  from  which  the  money  was  derived. 
All  original  certificates  issued  for  deposits  by  military,  naval,  and  other  officers,  the  amounts  of  which  are 
required  to  be  recorded  in  any  of  the  bureaus  of  the  "War,  Navy,  Interior,  or  other  Executive  Departments, 
will,  immediately  upon  their  receipt  by  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury,  be  compared  with  the  proper 
depositary  account,  recorded,  and  forwarded  to  the  head  of  the  Department  to  which  the  deposits  pertain 
for  designation  of  the  proper  appropriations,  etc.

REGULATIONS  FOR  THE  DEPOSIT  OF  PUBLIC  MONEYS.

1S96. 
Department  Circular  No.  90. 

Division  of  Public  MoneyB. 

Office  of  THE   SECRETARY, 
Washington,  D.  C,  June  12,  1896. 

To  Collectors  and  Surveyors  of  Customs,  Collectors  of  Internal  Revenue,  Receivers  of  Public  Moneys, 
Marshals,  Clerks  of  Courts,  and  all  other  Officers  or  Agents  of  the  United  States  engaged  in 
Collecting,  Depositing,  or  Transmitting  Public  Moneys  : 

The  following  regulations,  based  upon  specific  provisions  of  existing  laws,  for  the  violation  of  which 
penalties  of  a  severe  character  are  provided,  are  hereby  prescribed,  and  a  strict  compliance  therewith 
enjoined : 

COLLECTIONS. 

Collectors  and  surveyors  of  customs,  collectors  of  internal  revenue,  and  receivers  of  public  moneys, 
living  in  the  same  city  or  town  with  the  Treasurer  or  an  assistant  treasurer  of  the  United  States,  or  a 
national  bank  depositary,  must  deposit  their  receipts  at  the  close  of  each  day.  Officers  at  such  a  distance 
from  a  depositary  that  daily  deposits  are  impracticable  must  forward  their  receipts  as  often  as  they 
amount  to  $1,000,  and  at  the  end  of  each  month  without  regard  to  the  amount  then  accumulated. 

All  collections  must  be  deposited  to  the  credit  of  the  Treasurer  of  the  United  States,  except  moneys 
received  by  collectors  of  internal  revenue  from  sales  under  section  3460,  Revised  Statutes  of  the  United 
States,  or  from  offers  of  compromise  when  received  prior  to  the  acceptance  of  the  offer,  which  must  be  deposited 
to  the  credit  of  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury. 

District  attorneys,  marshals,  and  clerks  of  courts,  who  receive  public  moneys  accruing  to  the  United 
States  from  fiues,  penalties  and  forfeitures,  fees,  costs  (includiug  costs  in  civil  and  criminal  suits  for  viola - 
lation  of  the  postal  laws),  forfeitures  of  recognizances,  debts  due  the  United  States,  interest  on  such  debts, 
sales  of  public  property,  or  from  any  other  sources,  except  as  stated  below,  will  deposit  the  same  in 
accordance  with  the  foregoing  paragraphs.  Moneys  accruing  from  customs  (including  navigation)  should 
be  paid  to  the  collector  or  surveyor  of  customs  of  the  district  in  which  the  case  arose,  a  receipt  accepted 
therefor  to  be  sent  to  the  Solicitor  of  the  Treasury.  Moneys  accruing  from  internal  revenue  cases  should 
be  paid  to  the  collector  of  internal  revenue  of  the  district  in  which  the  case  arose,  a  receipt  accepted 
therefor  to  be  sent  to  the  Commissioner  of  Internal  Eevenue.  Moneys  accruing  from  civil  post-office  suits, 
and_/wies  in  criminal  cases  for  violation  of  the  postal  laws  should  be  deposited  to  the  credit  of  the  Treas- 
urer of  the  United  States  for  the  use  of  the  Post- Office  Department. 

The  Department  encourages  the  practice  of  a  deputy  collector  depositing  directly  with  a  depositary

TENNESSEE  CENTENNIAL  EXPOSITION. 


Division  of  Customs. 

Office  of  THE   SECRETARY.. 

Washington,  D.  C,  June  24, 1896. 

To  Collectors  and  other  Officers  of  the  Customs: 

The  following  public  resolution  (No.  49)  was  approved  by  the  President  on  May  18,  1896 : 

JOINT  RESOLUTION  Authorizing  foreign  exhibitors  at  the  Tennessee  Centennial  Exposition,  to  he  held  in  Nashville,  Tennessee, 
in  eighteen  hundred  and  ninety-seven,  to  bring  to  this  country  foreign  laborers  from  their  respective  countries  for  the  pur- 
pose of  preparing  for  and  making  their  exhibits,  and  allowing  articles  imported  from  foreign  countries  for  the  sole  purpose 
of  exhibition  at  said  exposition  to  be  imported  free  of  duty,  under  regulations  prescribed  by  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury. 

Whereas  the  Tennessee  Centennial  Exposition  Company  of  Nashville,  Tennessee,  have  extended 
invitations  which  have  been  accepted  by  the  several  nations,  and  space  for  installing  foreign  exhibits  has 
been  applied  for  and  duly  apportioned,  and  concessions  and  privileges  granted  by  the  exposition  manage- 
ment to  the  citizens  and  subjects  of  foreign  nations  ;  and 

Whereas  for  the  purpose  of  securing  the  production  upon  the  exposition  grounds  of  scenes  illustrative 
of  the  architecture,  dress,  habits,  and  modes  of  life,  occupation,  industries,  means  of  locomotion  and 
transportation,  amusements,  entertainments,  and  so  forth,  of  the  natives  of  foreign  countries,  it  has  been 
necessary  for  the  Tennessee  Centennial  Exposition  Company  to  grant  concessions  and  privileges  to  certain 
firms  and  corporations  conceding  the  right  to  make  such  productions :  Therefore, 

Besolved  by  the  Senate  and  Bouse  of  Representatives  of  the  United  States  of  America  in  Congress  assembled, 
That  the  Act  of  Congress  approved  February  twenty-sixth,  eighteen  hundred  and  eighty-five,  prohibiting 
the  importation  of  foreigners  under  contract  to  perform  labor,  and  the  Acts  of  Congress  prohibiting  the 
coming  of  Chinese  persons  into  the  United  States,  and  the  Acts  amendatory  of  these  Acts,  shall  not  be  so 
construed,  nor  shall  anything  therein  operate  to  prevent,  hinder,  or  in  any  wise  restrict  any  foreign 
exhibitor,  representative,  or  citizen  of  a  foreign  nation,  or  the  holder,  who  is  a  citizen  of  a  foreign  nation, 
of  any  concession  or  privilege  from  the  Tennessee  Centennial  Exposition  Company  of  Nashville,  Tennes- 
see, from  bringing  into  the  United  States,  under  contract,  such  mechanics,  artisans,  agents,  or  other 
employees,  natives  of  their  respective  foreign  countries,  as  they  or  any  of  them,  may  deem  necessary  for 
the  purpose  of  making  preparations  for  installing  or  conducting  their  exhibits  or  of  preparing  or  install- 
ing or  conducting  any  business  authorized  or  permitted  under  or  by  virtue  of  or  pertaining  to  any  con- 
cession or  privilege  which  may  have  been  granted  by  the  Tennessee  Centennial  Exposition  Company  of 
Nashville,  Tennessee,  in  connection  with  such  exposition  :  Provided,  however,  that  no  alien  shall  by  virtue 
of  this  Act  enter  the  United  States  under  contract  to  perform  labor  except  by  express  permission,  naming 
such  alien,  of  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury  ;  and  any  such  alien  who  may  remain  in  the  United  States 
for  more  than  one  year,  after  the  close  of  said  exposition,  shall  thereafter  be  subject  to  all  the  processes 
and  penalties  applicable  to  aliens  coming  in  violation  of  the  alien-contract-labor  law  aforesaid. 

Sec.  2.  That  all  articles  which  shall  be  imported  from  foreign  countries  for  the  sole  purpose  of  exhi- 
bition at  said  exposition,  upon  which  there  shall  be  a  tariff  or  customs  duty,  shall  be  admitted  free  of 
payment  of  duty,  customs  fees,  or  charges,  under  such  regulations  as  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury 
shall  prescribe  ;  but  it  shall  be  lawful  at  any  time  during  the  exhibition  to  sell,  for  delivery  at  the  close 
of  the  exposition,  any  goods  or  property  imported  for  and  actually  on  exhibition  in  the  exposition  build- 
ings or  on  its  grounds,  subject  to  such  regulations  for  the  security  of  the  revenue  and  for  the  collection  of 
import  duties  as  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury  shall  prescribe :  Provided,  That  all  such  articles,  when 
sold  or  withdrawn  for  consumption  in  the  United  States,  shall  be  subject  to  the  duty,  if  any,  imposed 


upon  such  article  by  the  revenue  laws  in  force  at  the  date  of  importation,  and  all  penalties  prescribed  by 
law  shall  be  applied  and  enforced  against  such  articles  and  against  the  persons  who  may  be  guilty  of  any 

illegal  sale  or  withdrawal. 
Approved,  May  is.  L896. 

1.  Tn  order  to  secure  the  privileges  of  free  entry  above  accorded,  every  package  destined  for  the 
Exposition  should  have  affixed  to  it  by  the  foreign  shipper  one  or  more  labels  representing  the  flag  of  the 

country  to  which  if  belongs.     This  label  should  be  about  8  by  12  inches  in  size,  and  should  bear  across 
the  face,  in  plain  black  letters,  the  inscription  :  "Exposition  at  Nashville." 
All  packages  should  lie  plainly  marked  as  follows  ; 

(1)  "Surveyor  of  Customs,  Nashville." 

(2)  "Exhibits  for  Tennessee  Centennial  Exposition." 

(3)  Name  of  consignee  or  agent  at  the  port  of  first  arrival  in  the  United  States. 

(4)  The  shipping  marks  and  numbers. 

(5)  Name  and  address  of  the  exhibitor. 

2.  Every  exhibit  shall  be  accompanied  by  an  invoice  in  duplicate,  which  shall  show  the  name  of 
the  exhibitor,  the  marks  and  numbers  of  the  packages,  with  a  description  of  their  contents,  and  a  declara- 
tion of  the  quantity  and  the  market  value  of  each  separate  kind  thereof  in  the  country  of  production. 
This  invoice  must  be  signed  by  the  exhibitor,  but  will  require  no  further  verification.  One  of  the 
invoices  will  be  transmitted  by  mail  to  the  surveyor  of  customs  at  Nashville,  and  the  other  to  the  con- 
signee of  the  goods  at  the  port  of  first  arrival. 

3.  As  a  matter  of  convenience,  it  is  recommended  that  all  packages  intended  for  the  Exposition  shall 
be  consigned  to  an  agent,  or  forwarder,  or  commissioner,  at  the  port  of  first  arrival,  who  will  attend  to 
customs  business  incident  to  the  transfer  of  packages  from  the  importing  vessel  to  a  bonded  route  for 
transportation  to  Nashville. 

4.  The  names  of  duly  bonded  companies  will  be  furnished  by  collectors  of  customs  at  the  ports  of 
arrival.  The  goods  may  be  transported  to  Nashville  by  companies  duly  bonded  for  the  carriage  of 
either  appraised  or  unappraised  merchandise.  Examination  and  appraisal  of  exhibits  at  the  port  of 
original  entry  are  hereby  waived. 

5.  The  consignee  of  the  merchandise  at  the  first  port  of  arrival  must  present  at  the  custom  house  the 
invoice  above  described,  with  a  bill  of  lading  and  an  entry  in  duplicate  made  out  upon  the  special  form 
to  be  prescribed  for  this  purpose  by  the  Treasury  Department,  which  will  show  the  name  of  the  foreign 
shipper  or  owner,  the  name  of  the  importing  vessel,  the  marks  and  numbers  of  the  packages,  with  a 
statement  of  the  nature  of  their  contents  and  of  their  foreign  value,  as  declared  in  the  invoice.  The 
entry  must  also  indicate  the  bonded  route  by  which  the  goods  are  to  be  transported  to  Nashville,  and 
must  be  signed  by  the  consignee.  No  other  declaration  will  be  required.  The  consolidation  of  dif- 
ferent shipments  on  one  entry  will  not  be  allowed  ;  such  practice  having  obtained  in  regard  to  previous 
expositions  has  proved  to  be  a  fruitful  source  of  confusion.  Each  entry  will  comprise,  therefore,  the 
consignment  of  a  single  exhibit  only.  The  goods  will  be  consigned,  on  the  customs  entry,  to  "Surveyor 
of  Customs,  Nashville,''  and  there  need  be  no  computation  of  duties  upon  this  entry,  but  the  amount 
charged  against  the  bond  of  the  transportation  company  shall  be  double  the  invoice  value. 

6.  The  collector  will  thereupon  issue  a  special  permit  bearing  the  words  "Nashville  Exposition," 
authorizing  the  transfer  of  the  goods  from  the  ship  to  the  bonded  railroad  for  transportation  to  Nashville, 
and  will  record  and  file  one  of  the  entries  in  his  office,  and  send  the  other,  by  mail,  with  the  invoice,  to 
the  surveyor  at  Nashville. 

7.  The  permit  will  be  taken  by  the  agent  or  consignee  to  the  inspector  on  board  the  importing  vessel, 
who  will  thereupon  send  the  goods,  by  a  cartman  duly  licensed,  to  be  delivered  under  the  supervision  of 
a  customs  officer  to  the  transportation  company. 


8.  The  consignee  will  also  prepare  a  manifest  of  the  goods,  which,  after  being  duly  certified,  will  be 
handed  to  the  conductor  of  the  car  containing  the  same,  and  a  duplicate  copy  must  be  sent  by  mail  to  the 
surveyor  of  customs  at  Nashville.  Upon  the  arrival  at  Nashville  of  any  car  containing  such  articles,  the 
conductor  or  agent  of  the  railroad  company  will  report  such  arrival  by  the  presentation  of  the  manifest 
to  the  customs  officer  designated  to  receive  it,  who  shall  compare  the  same  with  the  copy  received  by 
mail,  and  superintend  the  opening  of  the  car,  taking  care  to  identify  the  packages  by  marks  and  numbers, 
as  described  in  the  manifest. 

9.  These  regulations  will  also  apply  to  goods  sent  to  the  Exposition  from  foreign  contiguous  territory. 
All  articles  destined  for  the  Exposition  arriving  from  Canada  or  Mexico,  on  through  cars,  under  consular 
seal,  must  be  consigned  by  the  foreign  shipper  to  the  "Surveyor  of  Customs"  at  Nashville. 

10.  The  buildings  and  spaces  set  apart  for  the  purposes  of  the  Exposition  are  constituted  "construct- 
ive bonded  warehouses  and  yards,"  and  all  foreign  articles  placed  therein  under  the  supervision  of  the 
customs  officers,  and  which  have  been  specially  imported  for  exhibition  therein,  will  be  treated  the  same 
as  merchandise  in  bond.  No  warehouse  entry  will  be  required  at  Nashville  in  order  to  obtain  entrance 
for  such  goods,  but  the  latter  will  be  kept  under  customs  supervision,  in  accordance  with  the  general 
regulations  governing  merchandise  in  bonded  warehouses. 

11.  Under  the  special  act  of  Congress  establishing  the  Tennessee  Centennial  Exposition,  sales  are 
permitted  during  its  continuance,  but  delivery  of  goods  sold  is  to  be  withheld  until  the  close  of  the  Fair. 
The  enforcement  of  this  latter  restriction  devolves  properly  upon  the  Exposition  authorities,  who,  being 
in  control  of  the  local  police,  are  responsible  for  the  protection  of  the  exhibits.  When  the  duties  have 
been  received  by  the  surveyor  upon  the  merchandise  contained  in  any  exhibit,  he  will  regard  such  exhibit 
as  released  from  customs  control,  except  so  far  as  concerns  the  supervision  necessary  to  secure  export  with 
refund  of  duty. 

12.  At  the  close  of  the  Exposition  all  goods  intended  for  exportation  will  be  transported  in  bond  to 
the  seaboard  or  exterior  port,  and  exported  therefrom  under  the  general  regulations  for  immediate  export 
in  bond,  as  modified  by  special  regulations  to  be  in  due  time  provided. 

13.  Any  merchandise  imported  by  an  exhibitor  in  excess  of  the  articles  duly  installed  as  exhibits 
will  be  placed  and  retained  in  a  storage  warehouse  at  the  expense  of  the  importer  until  duly  entered  for 
payment  of  duty  or  exportation.  '  Withdrawals  of  merchandise  stored  under  these  conditions,  if  made 
for  the  purpose  of  placing  the  same  within  the  Exposition,  will  be  treated  under  the  provisions  for  entry 
on  arrival  at  first  port  of  entry,  and  no  duty  will  be  required  to  be  paid.  Such  merchandise  must  be 
delivered  at  the  Exposition  in  charge  of  a  customs  officer. 

Goods  which  have  been  imported  by  exhibitors  in  excess  of  those  used  as  exhibits,  and  stored  on  their 
account,  may  be  withdrawn  at  any  time  for  consumption  on  payment  of  duty  and  charges.  Whenever 
duty-paid  goods  of  this  class  shall  be  exported  without  having  left  the  custody  of  the  surveyor,  the  duty 
paid  thereon,  less  1  per  cent,  will  be  refunded,  provided  the  duty  paid  on  any  such  exported  package 
shall  have  amounted  to  $50.  Exhibits  entered  for  exportation  without  payment  of  duty  are  not  subject 
to  appraisement. 

14.  Articles  brought  by  proprietors  or  managers  of  theatrical  exhibitions  for  temporary  use  may  be 
entered  free  of  duty  upon  the  filing  of  satisfactory  bonds  for  their  export  within  six  months  after  such 
importation,  as  provided  for  in  paragraph  596  of  the  tariff  act. 

15.  It  is  to  be  distinctly  understood  that  the  United  States  is  not  liable  for  any  loss,  casualty,  or  injury 
to  the  merchandise  imported  as  exhibits  at  the  Exposition,  nor  for  any  debt,  contract,  or  expense  incident 
to  the  transportation,  care,  or  treatment  of  such  merchandise. 

16.  All  entries,  invoices,  permits,  abstracts,  and  reports  relating  to  merchandise  imported  under  the 


act  of  May  18,  1896,  must  be  separately  made,  and  must  be  stamped  with  the  words,  "Tenuessee  Cen- 
tennial Exposition. " 

17.  Additional  special  regulations  will  be  provided  in  due  time  covering  the  withdrawal  of  exhibits 
for  consumption,  transportation,  or  exportation  at  the  close  of  the  Exposition. 

18.  The  privileges  granted  by  virtue  of  these  regulations  are  intended  solely  for  the  benefit  of  exhib- 
itors at  the  Tennessee  Centennial  Exposition,  and  with  the  view  of  relieving  them,  so  far  as  practicable,  of 
delays  and  vexations  in  connection  with  the  customs  business  pertaining  to  their  importations. 

Any  attempt  to  take  advantage  of  these  regulations  in  order  to  evade  the  tariff  laws  of  the  United 
States  will  subject  the  offender  to  all  the  penalties  prescribed  by  those  laws,  including  confiscation  of  goods 
and  fine  and  imprisonment.

To  Collectors  of  Customs  and  others: 

Attention  is  invited  to  the  order  of  the  Department  of  Agriculture,  appended  hereto,  dated  the  19th 
instant,  relative  to  certificates  of  inspection  of  meats  exported  from  the  United  States,  and  especially  to 
that  portion  which  revokes  the  order  of  February  25,  1896,  embodied  in  the  circular  of  the  Treasury

Order  Postponing  the  Certification  of  Export  Beef  to  March  15, 1897. 


U.  S.  Department  oe  Agrictjlttjbe, 

Office  of  the  Secretary, 

Washington,  D.  C,  June  19,  1896. 

Whereas  section  2  of  the  act  of  Congress,  approved  March  3,  1891,  as  amended  in  the  act  approved 
March  2,  1895,  provides  as  follows : 

"Sec.  2.  That  the  Secretary  of  Agriculture  shall  also  cause  to  be  made  a  careful  inspection  of  all  live 
cattle,  the  meat  of  which,  fresh,  salted,  canned,  corned,  packed,  cured,  or  otherwise  prepared,  is  intended 
for  exportation  to  any  foreign  country,  at  such  times  and  places,  and  in  such  manner  as  he  may  think 
proper,  with  a  view  to  ascertain  whether  said  cattle  are  free  from  disease,  and  their  meat  sound  and 
wholesome,  and  may  appoint  inspectors  who  shall  be  authorized  to  give  an  official  certificate  clearly 
stating  the  condition  in  which  such  cattle  and  meat  are  found,  and  no  clearance  shall  be  given  to  any 
vessel  having  on  board  any  fresh,  salted,  canned,  corned,  or  packed  beef  being  the  meat  of  cattle  killed 
after  the  passage  of  this  act  for  exportation  to  and  sale  in  a  foreign  country  from  any  port  in  the  United 
States  until  the  owner  or  shipper  shall  obtain  from  an  inspector  appointed  under  the  provision  of  this  act 
a  certificate  that  said  cattle  were  free  from  disease,  and  that  their  meat  is  sound  and  wholesome." 

And  whereas  it  has  been  found  impossible  to  establish  inspection  prior  to  July  1,  1896,  at  all  points 
where  beef  is  prepared  and  packed  for  the  export  trade,  and 

Whereas  legislation  is  pending  modifying  the  requirement  for  certificates  with  all  exported  beef, 

It  is  ordered,  That  the  requirement  of  certificates  shall  be  postponed  until  March  15,  1897.  All  orders 
and  regulations  of  this  Department  inconsistent  with  this  order  are  hereby  revoked. 

The  greater  part  of  the  exported  beef  is  now  inspected  and  will  be  certified,  and  any  Government 
desiring  to  secure  inspected  beef  exclusively  may  do  so  by  making  the  proper  regulations.  It  is  not, 
however,  deemed  practicable  to  exclude  from  exportation  to  countries  which  gladly  accept  it  the  beef 
which  the  retail  butchers  find  unsalable  because  it  is  cut  from  inferior  portions  of  the  carcass.  Much  of 
this  beef  has  been  inspected,  but  there  is  no  way  of  identifying  it  after  the  carcass  has  been  cut.  As  a 
considerable  number  of  firms  collect  these  special  cuts  from  the  retailers  and  pack  them  for  exportation, 
to  enforce  the  statute  as  it  stands  would  destroy  their  business.  An  amendment  to  the  law  which  will  avoid 
this  undesirable  result  has  been  favorably  reported  from  the  proper  committee  in  each  branch  of  the 
Congress,  and  I  deem  it  my  duty  to  postpone  the  order  requiring  certificates  until  this  bill  has  been  duly 
considered  and  acted  upon  by  the  law-making  power  of  the  Government.

BE  AW  BACK  ON  SUGAR  AND  SIRUP. 


1896. 
Department  Circular  No.  102. 

i  of  Customs. 


office  of  THE   SECRETARY, 

Washington,  D.  C,  June  25,  1896. 
To  Collectors  and  other  Officers  of  the  Customs  : 

On  the  exportation  of  refined  sugars  and  sirups,  made  wholly  from  imported  raw  sugars,  drawback 
will  be  allowed  equal  in  amount  to  the  duty  paid  on  the  material  used,  less  the  legal  deduction  of  1  per 
cent. 

When  the  exported  sugars  are  "hard  refined,"  of  standard  test,  commercially  known  as  loaf,  cut 
loaf,  cube,  granulated,  crushed  or  powdered,  and  are  made  wholly  from  imported  raw  cane  sugars,  the 
amount  of  drawback  shall  be  determined  by  allowing  for  each  100  pounds  of  the  exported  article,  the 
duties  paid  on  the  respective  grades  and  quantities  of  material  used,  as  indicated  in  the  following  schedule :

When  the  "hard  refined"  sugars  hereinbefore  described  are  made  wholly  from  imported  raw  beet 
sugars,  the  duty  paid  on  the  material  used  for  each  pound  of  the  exported  article  may  be  determined  by 
dividing  the  duty  paid  on  1  pound  of  the  material  by  the  decimal  denoting  the  "net  analysis"  of  such 
material,  and  then  deducting  from  the  amount  so  found,  a§  au  equivalent  of  the  value  of  the  material  for 


the  sirup  product,  the  percentage  of  that  amount  corresponding  to  the  polariscope  test  of  the  raw  sugar 
used,  indicated  in  the  following  schedule:

When  "soft  refined"  sugars,  made  wholly  from  imported  raw  sugars,  are  exported  with  benefit  of 
drawback,  the  drawback  entry  must  show  the  respective  values  of  such  soft  sugars  and  of  standard  granu- 
lated sugar  on  the  same  market;  and  the  drawback  per  pound  on  the  "soft  refined"  sugar  shall  be  such 
part  of  the  drawback  per  pound  provided  for  "hard  refined"  sugar,  made  from  the  same  kind  and  grade 
of  material,  as  the  value  of  such  soft  sugar  is  of  the  value  of  such  granulated  sugar. 

The  rate  of  drawback  on  the  "soft  refined"  sugar  may  be  fixed  by  use  of  the  following  proportion  : 
As  the  value  of  1  pound  of  standard  granulated  sugar  is  to  the  value  of  1  pound  of  the  "soft  refined" 
sugar,  so  is  the  drawback  provided  for  the  pound  of  granulated  sugar,  to  the  drawback  allowable  on  the 
pound  of  "soft  refined"  sugar,  made  from  like  material. 

The  required  values  of  the  refined  sugars  declared  on  the  drawback  entry,  shall  be  verified  by  refer- 
ence to  standard  market  quotations  on  date  of  shipment. 

The  amount  of  drawback  which  may  be  allowed  on  the  exported  sirup  products  of  raw  sugars,  shall 
be  determined  by  allowing  for  each  gallon  of  the  exported  article,  valued  at  5  cents  in  condition  as 
"thrown"  from  the  "centrifugal,"  the  duties  paid  on  the  respective  grades  and  quantities  of  material 
used,  as  indicated  in  the  following  schedule :

The  value  of  the  sirup,  in  condition  as  thrown  from  the  centrifugal,  shall  be  declared  by  the  manu- 
facturer on  the  drawback  entry,  which  declaration  shall  be  verified  by  the  collector ;  and  if  the  declara- 
tion so  verified  shows  a  value  per  gallon  above  or  below  5  cents,  the  allowance  shall  be  determined  by 
increasing  or  reducing  the  schedule  allowance  in  proportion  to  the  increase  or  reduction  above  or  below 
the  5  cents  per  gallon  above  specified ;  but  in  no  case  shall  the  allowance  be  based  on  a  value  of  sirup 
exceeding  8  cents  per  gallon,  without  special  authority  from  the  Department. 

When  imported  raw  cane  and  beet  sugars  are  "blended"  or  mixed  in  the  process  of  manufacturing 
refined  sugars  and  sirups,  the  manufacturer's  declaration  must  show  separately  the  respective  quantities 
of  the  different  kinds  and  grades  of  the  sugars  so  mixed.  In  liquidating  entries  covering  portions  of  the 
products  of  such  mixtures,  drawback  shall  be  based  on  proportionate  quantities  of  material  corresponding 
to  the  quantities  of  the  different  kinds  and  grades  of  materials  so  mixed. 

For  a  fraction  of  a  degree  of  test  of  the  raw  sugar  used  in  the  manufacture  of  either  refined  sugar  or 
sirup,  the  allowance  of  quantity  of  material  shall  be  fixed  by  a  proportionate  division  of  the  difference 
between  the  schedule  allowances  for  the  degrees  next  above  and  below  such  fraction. 

The  quantities  of  sugar  and  sirup  exported  shall  be  ascertained  by  United  States  weighers  and 
gaugers,  respectively ;  and  samples  shall  be  taken  as  ordered  by  the  collector  to  be  submitted  to  the 
appraiser,  for  report  of  polariscope  test  and  such  other  expert  inspection  as  may  be  requisite. 

On  requisition  of  collectors,  appraising  officers  shall  furnish  polariscope  tests,  "net  analyses,"  and 
other  conditions  of  valuation  of  raw  sugars,  not  found  on  the  import  invoice,  for  use  in  liquidation  of 
drawback  entries. 

Department's  Circular  No.  20,  of  February  1,  1896  (Synopsis  16738),  is  hereby  superseded.
